Grants to New York nonprofit organizations to provide supportive housing services for homeless individuals with special conditions, needs, and other life challenges. Registration is required before applying. Funding through this program may be used for rental support and other services that help eligible individuals remain stably housed.
New York will invest a portion of these resources to specifically address vulnerable populations experiencing homelessness. To ensure the maximum benefit of this investment, the State will utilize the existing federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) model that engages localities and not-for-profit (NFP) providers in developing and implementing data-driven strategies to address homelessness in specific populations such as victims of domestic violence, runaway, and homeless youth and formerly incarcerated individuals. The State intends to develop a total of 20,000 units over the next 15 years. As such, the State is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to advance the five-year goal of developing at least 6,000 units of supportive housing over five years for persons identified as homeless with special needs, conditions or other life challenges.
Part of New York State’s Housing Plan includes an investment of new supportive housing resources and services to address vulnerable populations experiencing homelessness. Therefore, the availability of and access to various support services such as employment and training opportunities, parenting education, counseling, independent living skills training, primary healthcare, substance use disorder treatment and mental health care, child care, and benefits advocacy are critical components of any project funded under this plan. The support services provided should be tailored and appropriate to the specific population to be served (e.g., safety planning for victims of domestic violence, treatment for a substance use disorder, etc.).
