Partnership to Support Aging in Place in Communities Severely Impacted by COVID-19

The RFP was developed in accordance with Section 7.41 of the Mental Hygiene Law, which calls for OMH to establish a geriatric service demonstration program to provide grants to providers of mental health care to older adults. The RFP calls for the development of local partnerships between behavioral health and aging support services to provide outreach, off-site services and supports, engagement with peers and the innovative use of technology to meet the unmet needs of older adults in New York State. This round of grants will focus on supporting aging in place for individuals, age 55 years and older, with mental health and substance abuse issues, and will focus on communities severely impacted by COVID-19.
