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 1,000 units for "population H." Of that total, 600 are congregate and 400 are scattered-site. The NYS Department of Health (DOH) AIDS Institute awarded the first 50 units. HASA is overseeing the request for proposal (RFP) process for the remaining units.
In the case of congregate units, these awards are made as soft commitments until the building is in construction.
$25,444 and $24,000 is the maximum annual cost per unit for the congregate and scattered site units, respectively.
Five years with a four-year option to renew. HASA reserves the right, prior to contract award, to determine the length of the initial contract term and each option to renew.
Must have site control as of the proposal due date (documented by a deed or other proof of ownership), executed contract of sale, a site control letter for city-owned property, an executed long-term lease of at least 30 years or an executed option to purchase.
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 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).
