Grants to New York nonprofits to develop housing programs for adults and children. Qualification is required before submitting an application. Funding is intended to support acquisition and rehabilitation as well as the construction of new facilities. The aim of the program is to provide a crisis response setting for transitional services for individuals with mental illness, or for step-down services rendered to hospital patients.

The Office of Mental Health announces the availability of capital funds for purposes of developing licensed Residential Crisis Support, Intensive Crisis Residence and/or Children’s Crisis Residence programs in accordance with 14 NYCRR Part 589.

An integral part of this crisis response system is residential crisis programs. These crisis programs offer therapeutic settings for the purpose of stabilizing crisis symptoms. The process of stabilization allows individuals to address the cause of the crisis, avert or delay the need for psychiatric hospitalization or emergency room admissions, connect to community organizations and activities, identified supports as well as rehabilitation and treatment services.  

The goal of this RFP is to fund selected agencies that will provide needed crisis and transitional services to individuals with a serious mental illness to prevent or delay hospitalization, and/or to assist in providing step-down services to individuals who are discharged from the hospital but require a higher level of support and services than can be provided in their permanent residency.
