Funding Award Details
New York/New York III is a City-State agreement to create 9,000 units of supportive housing in NYC by 2016. There are nine distinct populations to be served by this housing, including 400 units for "population D". DOHMH is overseeing the request for proposal (RFP) process for all 400 units. All of these units are congregate and are expected to be built with capital subsidies from the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and/or NYS Homeless Housing Assistance Program (HHAP) and NYS Housing and Community Renewal (HCR) Unified Funding.
These awards are made as soft commitments until the building is in construction. DOHMH has one rolling RFP for all Pop D units.
$25,000 per unit.
DOHMH anticipates that awarded contracts will be for an initial three-year period with two three-year options to renew.
No unit restrictions. Applicants must be nonprofit corporations.
The NY/NY III awards are meant to cover operating and service expenses and, for the congregate units, they are being funded in coordination with the following four agencies: OMH, NYS Homes and Community Renewal (HCR), NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance's Homeless Housing Assistance Program (HHAP) and the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). For the State share of units for individuals living with mental illness -- populations "A", "B" and "C" -- OMH is providing most of the capital funding.
In the 2011 Unified Funding Award, OMH and HCR partnered together to make operations and service funding for 200 NY/NY III units available in tandem with HCR capital funding.
As of April 2015 very few of of these units were still available.
