RFPs and NOFAs
Supportive housing nonprofit organizations rely on an array of city, state, federal and private funding sources to develop and operate supportive housing. These sources routinely release Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and Notices of Funds Availability (NOFA) to announce when specific funding streams are available. Below, you’ll find a list of the most recent supportive housing RFPs. For a detailed list of every funding source available to New York supportive housing providers, visit our Funding Guide.

Applications are due on 7/16/16 at 4:30pm.
Funding through this RFP is available to support the services and operating needs of projects which may be in various stages of capital development; however, funding will not be made available to existing projects, which have already secured service and operating funds through other sources, as a means to enhance their existing subsidies.
