The New York State Office of Mental Health announced that the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI) Workgroup is granting all conditional awardees a six-month extension to secure capital resources due to disruptions caused by COVID-19. ESSHI conditional awards are now valid until May 18, 2021.
Awardees must request any additional extension past this date, for up to six months, if the opportunity to apply to an uncommitted capital financing source was not available during the 12-month period or if the application is still pending consideration by the capital funder at the time the conditional award would otherwise expire. All requests must be submitted in writing.
