State, New York City
NYC DOHMH, NYS OASAS
NY/NY III provides service and operating funding for permanent supportive housing in New York City.
Tenant Eligibility Criteria
Chronically homeless families, or those at serious risk of becoming chronically homeless, in which the head of household suffers from a substance abuse disorder, a disabling medical condition, or HIV/AIDS. Awardees must accept referrals for eligible families with any of the three disabilities.
Up to 100 units will be targeted to young adults (aged 18-25).
Nonprofit service providers with experience serving the relevant population are eligible to apply.
$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.
- These units 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) Funding.
750 units will be funded in total; 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.
- 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 for services.
