State, New York City
NY/NY III provides service and operating funding for permanent supportive housing in New York City. All units have been allocated and this RFP is now closed.
Tenant Eligibility Criteria
Young adults ages 18-25 years who are at risk of homelessness and have either
- recently left or are leaving foster care or
- have been in foster care for more than one year after their 16th birthday.
Nonprofit service providers with experience serving young adults are eligible to apply.
$22,000 is the maximum annual per-unit amount.
DOHMH anticipates that awarded contracts will be for an initial three (3) year period with two three (3) year options to renew.
- 200 units have been allocated for this population. The units are split 50/50 between congregate and scattered-site. All 200 units are being awarded under a rolling request for proposals (RFP) from DOHMH. The NYC Administration for Children's Services (ACS) and NYS Office of Children & Family Services (OCFS) 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.
- 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).
- 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.
