Tenant Eligibility Criteria
For permanent supportive housing, tenants must be homeless individuals and families with disabilities including mental illness, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and domestic violence. Funding was formerly used for a non-disabled homeless population for services and/or transitional housing.
Nonprofit organizations providing permanent supportive housing, transitional housing and support services only.
Up to $400,000 for capital. No set amount for operating and services contracts.
For operating and services, initial grants are for two or three years, after which the grant is renewable annually.
- This program is no longer active. This program represented part of the funding million that New York State receives in McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Program funding. Funding now flows through Continuum of Care grants.
- Projects had to have site control within one year of initial award. Capital funding required a 100% match. Operating funding required a 25% cash match. Services funding required a 20% cash match. Rental assistance was not adjustable once the fair market rent is set.
- OTDA or DHS may negotiate a reimbursement rate with each provider, related to the size of the building and ranging from $125 to $200 per unit per month.
