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.
