State, New York City
NY/NY III provides service and operating funding for permanent supportive housing 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 who have been homeless for at least 6 months of the last year and who have a substance abuse disorder that is a primary barrier to independent living. Up to 50 units will be targeted to young adults (aged 18-25 years old).
Nonprofit service providers with experience serving those with Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are eligible to apply.
$18,000 is the maximum annual amount per unit.
DOHMH anticipates that awarded contracts will be for an initial three (3) year period with two three (3) year options to renew.
- These units were 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.
- DOHMH is overseeing the request for proposal (RFP) process for all 750 units, of which 250 are congregate and 500 are scattered-site. DOHMH and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) will fund the ongoing operations and support services for these contracts.
- In the case of congregate units, these awards are made as soft commitments until the building is in construction. DOHMH has one rolling RFP for the units.
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.
