Grants to New York nonprofit and for-profit enriched housing programs, adult homes, and assisted living programs to increase the amount of assisted living beds available in eligible counties. Nonprofit organizations must prequalify prior to applying. Funding may be used for licensure applications or capital projects to increase the number of available beds.
The New York State Department of Health (the Department) is issuing this Request for Applications (RFA) to award up to 1,000 Assisted Living Program (ALP) beds, to allow for the application for ALP beds by eligible entities across New York State who are new to the delivery of adult home or enriched housing program services and to currently licensed adult homes or enriched housing programs new to the delivery of ALP services. This initiative is made available under Section 461-l(l) of the Social Services Law (SSL), authorizing the addition of up to 1,000 Assisted Living Program (ALP) beds in those counties where there is currently no more than one ALP provider and/or where the county’s current ALP capacity exceeds 85.0%.
In addition, the Department announces the availability of funds as established pursuant to Section 2825-f of the Public Health Law (PHL), Chapter 54 of the Laws of 2018, and Section 1680-r of the Public Authorities Law (PAL), to provide grants in support of capital projects directly related to the establishment of an Adult Home (AH) or Enriched Housing Program (EHP) with an Assisted Living Program (ALP) or to increase the number of available ALP beds located in an existing facility within specific counties.
A. ALP Licensure (Component A)
The ALP service package includes personal care services, home health aide services, personal emergency response services, nursing services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical supplies and equipment not requiring prior approval and adult day health care provided in a program approved by the Department of Health. ALP Operators are required to provide sufficient numbers of qualified staff to perform case management functions for ALP participants and to ensure their overall health, safety and well-being.
The ALP provides supportive housing and home care services to individuals who are medically eligible for placement in a nursing facility, but whose needs can be met in a less restrictive and lower cost, community-based residential setting. Eligible ALP participants do not require continual nursing care and are neither chronically bedfast nor impaired to the degree that they endanger the safety of themselves or other residents. ALP licensure allows the provision of comprehensive, person-centered services for participants consistent with an individualized clinical assessment and corresponding person-centered care plan, developed to carefully reflect the individual’s desired level of personal autonomy, community integration and freedom to make informed choices.
B. ALP Capital Projects (Component B)
ALP Capital Projects include, but are not limited to, activities intended to:
Each “Eligible Project” must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible to receive ALP beds under this RFA:
