Request for Proposals for Family and Youth Development Programs

Families living in New York City (and indeed, elsewhere) face stressors that can have a negative effect on youth and family functioning, ranging from challenging living conditions in their communities to disruptions within their families. Interventions that support family and youth development, including bonds within the family and their ability to cope with distressing circumstances, are both effective in preventing maladaptive life outcomes (e.g., school dropout, un- or underemployment, justice system involvement) and cost effective with regard to savings resulting from the avoidance of these outcomes.

Programs funded by CJII could serve families on the continuum from early to targeted prevention, including populations such as expectant mothers, families with young children, and/or families with young adults (i.e., up to age 21) living at home—in or from Manhattan, with preference given to applicants serving residents from four focus neighborhoods: East Harlem, Central and West Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Lower East Side. Eligible programs include those that are:

  • evidence-based (i.e., robust demonstration of effectiveness);
  • promising (i.e., limited or initial demonstration of effectiveness; or has been implemented with an evidence base in a different context); or
  • innovative (i.e., no demonstration of effectiveness but designed with current best practices in mind; e.g., a new program or significant adaptation of an evidence-based program to a new context or for a different client population)

The anticipated total funding for family and youth development programs is up to $13 million over three years.

Requests for Proposals for Youth Opportunity Hubs

Preventing antisocial behavior and addressing risk factors for delinquency can help young people avoid juvenile and criminal justice system involvement, ultimately resulting in better individual and societal outcomes.

These approaches facilitate the prevention of maladaptive behaviors and outcomes in a way that supports holistic youth development by focusing on young people’s strengths rather than solely or predominantly on risk and delinquency.

Youth Opportunity Hubs will link existing service providers within a neighborhood or community. Applicants should propose to provide wraparound support and opportunities to youth and young adults from one or more of the following four neighborhoods: East Harlem, Central and West Harlem, Washington Heights, or the Lower East Side.

Wraparound supports may include:

  • Employment and workforce development opportunities
  • Education and training
  • Mentorship and relationship-building
  • Recreation opportunities
  • Arts and culture
  • Life skills
  • Family strengthening support
  • Trauma-specific services
  • Mental health screening and counseling
  • Substance abuse services (including treatment and harm reduction)
  • Health education
  • Community service
  • Housing assistance and placement
  • Legal advocacy and access to benefits
  • Civic engagement and leadership

Applicants should oversee and coordinate the proposed hub; however, applicants are also expected to explicitly identify other providers to deliver additional wraparound support and opportunities within the hub beyond what is provided currently, as necessary.

The anticipated total funding for up to six hubs is up to $51.5 million.

Community Based Organization Planning Grant

August 16, 2016- The New York State Department of Health, Office of Health Insurance Programs is issuing a Request for Applications (RFA) to announce the availability of funds for the support of Community Based Organizations in specific targeted areas that remain un-served/underserved as part of the DSRIP Program. With major initiatives such as DSRIP, smaller community organizations are often challenged in how to engage and contract with larger, lead organizations, such as the PPS in DSRIP. These organizations tend to be administratively lean, have fewer resources and also compete with other CBOs for similar funding grants.

Additionally, it may be challenging to analyze and present their service mission and enterprise in a business framework for contract arrangements. The administrative time and resources required for such engagements often exceed what individual CBOs have available to analyze the business requirements, and to successfully formulate a business strategy and proposition. Further, such demands may burden the CBO and undermine the resources needed for the CBO to continue to deliver its core services.

This RFA is intended to solicit applications for grants to assist CBO Consortiums in planning activities to identify business requirements and formulate strategies for short-term needs. This also includes longer term plans that the CBO consortium may envision in system transformation. Overall, this will allow them to better position themselves for continuing engagement with PPSs in DSRIP projects, and consequently, value based payment and contracting.

It is the Department’s intent to award one award for each of the three regions outlined in the RFA. The three regions consist of New York City, Long Island and Mid-Hudson, and Rest of State.  A maximum funding amount for each region is $2,500,000.

Request for Proposals to Increase Access to Services for Survivors of Crime

August 19, 2016- As part of CJII, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the Institute for State and Local Governance (ISLG) are soliciting proposals that increase access to services for survivors of crime, particularly those from underserved groups. Programs that address barriers to service access have the potential to increase service usage and increase reporting, both of which may improve survivor outcomes. Increased use of services and reporting may also facilitate the prosecution of criminals and mitigate the increased risk of criminal offending that is often associated with victimization or circumstances surrounding victimization, ultimately increasing public safety.

Programs should focus on one or more of the following groups that face significant barriers to access: immigrants; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) individuals; individuals who are D/deaf or hard of hearing; individuals with disabilities; people of color; and/or individuals who belong to other underserved groups.

Applicants may propose to either expand/enhance their existing capacity to deliver services or develop and pilot new approaches to accomplish the aforementioned goals. Proposals should address one (or more) of the following needs:

  • Sign language interpretation and translation services to ensure communication and service access for survivors who are D/deaf or hard of hearing and/or non-English speaking
  • Education and training for service providers on culturally-competent programming tailored to particular groups of survivors
  • Culturally-specific/competent programming tailored to a specific group of survivors, taking into account members’ unique identities and needs
  • Public awareness and outreach programs that aim to raise awareness about and connect survivors to available services, increase crime reporting, and educate about victimization, particularly with respect to underserved groups and those who may experience higher rates of victimization
  • Other approaches to increase use of supportive services (by increasing access) for survivors, which may, in turn, increase crime reporting

Programs should be administered in Manhattan and/or serve residents of Manhattan, with preference given to applicants that have close community ties to and/or serve residents of four focus neighborhoods: East Harlem, Central and West Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Lower East Side.

Anticipated total funding for the Increase Access to Services for Survivors of Crime initiative is up to $11.4 million to be spread across up to ten awards.
