New York City
The Senior Affordable Housing Tenant Services program provides funding for light-touch services for formerly homeless, senior tenants in NYC.
Tenant Eligibility Criteria
Homeless seniors age 62+ with low incomes who are referred for placement by the City. This funding is to provide services for units developed through HPD's Senior Affordable Rental Apartments (SARA) program.
Applicants must be 501(c)3 nonprofits.
$5,000 per year for each homeless senior unit, plus an annual inflator of up to 2%.
Five years, with a four-year option to renew.
- Applicants should provide a range of services and engagement opportunities for all seniors through light touch case assistance targeted for seniors who have histories of homelessness. Contractors who apply for funding should have experience delivering services to seniors with low incomes, cultural and linguistic competency where needed. Contractors are also expected to have a 1:20 ratio of staff to formerly homeless tenants.
Although the anticipated number of contracts will depend on the proposed number of units and available funding, the anticipated number of units is estimated at approximately 150 per year.
Awards are preliminary. Final awards will be contingent upon an updated Letter of Support from HPD confirming site control, rental assistance and anticipated construction closing date. Preliminary Awards may expire within two (2) years if a second Letter of Support from HPD, including an anticipated construction closing date, is not obtained.
