Procurement Agency


Total Annual Award

$34 million

Tenant Eligibility Criteria

  • Populations that receive funding through the MRT Supportive Housing Allocation Plan,
  • Populations covered under NY/NY III, and
  • Populations covered by other federal, State and/or municipal funding streams which provide social service funding for high need and high cost Medicaid recipients.

Eligible Applicants

HCR is seeking proposals from development teams that include service providers who have service, operating, and capital awards funded through the MRT Supportive Housing Allocation Plan, the NY/NY III Agreement, or from other federal, state and municipal funding streams for high need and high cost Medicaid recipients, to develop multifamily supportive rental housing projects either through new construction, or the gut rehabilitation of vacant buildings.

Funding Award Details

2014, the first year that HCR allocated MRT capital through the Unified Funding Round, resulted in $13 million in funding for 6 supportive housing projects.

Amount Details

$100,000 per unit, up to a maximium of $200,000 per unit.


The project must remain in service for 15 years.

Network Notes

This RFP seeks to increase the number of integrated supportive housing developments in which a portion of the units are occupied by tenants who are receiving services, and a portion of the units are available to tenants of affordable or market rate units who are not in need of services. Evidence of the service, operating, and capital funding is required as part of the application submission. Successful applicants and their service providers will be required to collect and submit relevant Medicaid patient data to the State Department of Health or another State agency to track Medicaid cost savings resulting from the investment of MRT funds. Applications requesting MRT funding need not demonstrate a capital funding commitment if the proposed project relies on a NY/NYIII services only commitment from a New York State agency participating agency under the NY/NYIII agreement. Applicants requesting MRT funds under this RFP may not also request Mitchell-Lama (ML) or CDBG-DR/AHF funds.

In 2015, HFA and HCR are making the same $34 million MRT capital available through both HFA 4% tax credits and HCR’s Unified Funding Round.  Applicants should be aware that this is the same pot of funding.
