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 750 units for "population G." Under the agreement, the City and State are each responsible for 375 units. All of the units are congregate. In NYC, DOHMH is awarding the units via a rolling request for proposals (RFP). OASAS is releasing an RFP in early 2017 for the 90 of the State's units.
These awards are made as soft commitments until the building is in construction.
$25,000 is the maximum annual per-unit amount.
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: NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH), NYS Housing 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).
Given the high cost of housing in New York City, DOHMH encourages providers to leverage another rental subsidy source such as Section 8 or Shelter Plus Care. If providers can obtain this funding, DOHMH will reduce its overall contribution but allow for greater funding available for services. This leveraging gives providers a viable project, and the City can then use the money saved to reinvest in more units.
