NY/NY III provides service and operating funding for congregate permanent supportive housing or licensed CR-SROs in New York City. All of the units for this population have been awarded, and the RFP for the funding of these units is now closed.
Tenant Eligibility Criteria
Single adults living in State-operated psychiatric centers or transitional residences who are at risk of homelessness and able to live independently in the community if provided with supportive housing.
Nonprofit service providers with experience serving adults with serious mental illness (SMI).
OMH funds units at the following levels:
- $21,030 per unit for Community Residence-Single Room Occupancy (CR-SRO) programs
- $18,136 per unit for Supported Single Room Occupancy (SP-SRO) programs.
Five years, with an initial period of one year and four annual renewals.
- The NY/NY III awards are meant to cover operating and service expenses.
- The OMH RFP states that a building must house between 45 and 60 individuals, although OMH has shown willingness to give smaller unit awards as part of a larger building of that size.
In the case of congregate units, these awards are made as soft commitments until the building is in construction.
