The Office of Mental Health (OMH) announces this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development and operation of a 27 bed Enhanced Young Adult Scattered Site Supportive Housing program located in New York City for young adults with a serious mental illness (SMI).
The target population for all 27 beds in this program are: young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 with serious mental illness coming from an institutional setting, leaving foster care, or are homeless. Some individuals may have a co-occurring Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and be at various stages of recovery. See Appendix D in the pre-submission uploads in Grants Gateway.
The Enhanced Young Adult Supportive Housing Program is scattered-site housing that can be sited in any borough in New York City. However, all 27 beds must be in one borough.
Although supportive housing is permanent housing, the agency will be expected to transition the individuals to an adult housing slot within their agency, another agency or to independent housing, as the individual progresses in their recovery and no later than their 26th birthday.
