Deadline: 03/10/2021

Award Details: The grant period is five years, from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2026.  Funding beyond Year One will be contingent upon the State Legislature’s continued appropriation of funds.

Approximately $24.3 million is expected to be available annually statewide contingent upon annual legislative appropriation, and it is anticipated that funding will continue at this appropriation level.

Each application may include a request for an annual grant award of a maximum of $350,000. Agencies applying for multiple grants will be limited to a maximum annual award of $1,200,000. This includes agency membership as a partnering agency or as a partner in consortia projects.

Funds will be allocated to each geographic area as follows: 40% to New York City; 10% to the big four cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Yonkers; and 50% to the Rest of the State, including at least 15% guaranteed to High Needs Rural Applicants. If there are not enough High Needs Rural applications meeting the scoring threshold outlined in the RFP, the portion of the guaranteed 15 percent not used would revert to the overall Rest of the State.

The State of New York has implemented a new statewide prequalification process designed to facilitate prompt contracting for not-for-profit vendors.  All such vendors are required to pre-qualify prior to grant application.  This includes all currently funded not-for-profit institutions that have already received an award and are in the middle of the program cycle. The pre-qualification must be completed prior to application in order to receive an award under this RFP.
