State, New York City
NYC DOHMH, NYS OASAS
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 fulfill all of the following:
- have completed a course of treatment for a substance abuse disorder
- are at risk of homelessness
- need long-term supportive housing to maintain sobriety
Nonprofit service providers. OASAS requires that its units be run by providers with a valid OASAS operating certificate.
$16,000 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.
Under the agreement, each agency has 250 scattered-site units and 125 congregate units. OASAS allocates its awards through specific request for proposals (RFPs). DOHMH has one rolling RFP for its share of the units.
In the case of congregate 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 Continuum of Care Funding. If providers can obtain this funding, DOHMH will reduce its overall contribution but allow for greater funding available for services.
At this time, all available units have been allocated and this RFP is closed.
