Funding Guide

Funding Guide

A typical supportive housing residence receives funding from a patchwork of city, state, federal and private sources. Keeping tabs on these funding programs -- their guidelines, deadlines and fine print -- can be a cumbersome task. The Network's Funding Guide is a one-stop resource for anyone looking to find funds for supportive housing.

Our Funding Guide offers up-to-date information and analysis on 58 New York supportive housing funding streams. Each profile contains the basic facts and figures for its given program. These include rules on how to apply, details on which populations are eligible and links for more info. Users can search through profiles using the tools on the left-hand side of the page. These filters allow you to search for entries by funding Type (capital, operating, etc.) and Source (New York City, federal, etc.), among other variables. Our profiles are updated regularly to maintain the most current information possible.

The status bar divides entries into the following four categories:

  • Available – These funding programs are currently accepting applications or have a rolling RFP. For example, 4% Low Income Tax Credits accepts applications on an ongoing basis.
  • Open Soon – These funding programs are currently NOT accepting applications, but funding will resume once funding is available or a new RFP is issued. For example, HHAP has not yet issued an RFP for 2015.  As soon as they do, we will update the status to ‘Available.’
  • Not Available – These funding programs still exist, but are no longer accepting applications and will not be issuing any more RFP’s for the foreseeable future. For example, many providers are operating under contracts for NY/NY III Population A, though no more funding is available for this.
  • Archived – These programs are no longer active. For example, US HUD’s Shelter Plus Care program has been archived.  All new awards are made under ‘Continuum of Care.’
