Scattered Site Supportive Housing for Individuals Re-entering the Community from Prison

The Office of Mental Health (OMH) is committed to investing in community-based housing that will support individuals with a serious mental illness (SMI) who are living in or are within one year of release from a New York State prison.

Based on the need for more supportive, scattered site housing opportunities to advance this mission, OMH is announcing this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development and operation of seven supportive housing programs in four (4) OMH regions:

  • Long Island
  • Hudson River
  • Central New York
  • Western New York

In addition to a mental illness, individuals may also have a substance use disorder, physical health care needs, or a combination of all three.

The seven scattered-site supportive housing programs will be in the following counties where there is a demonstrated need:

  • Albany/Schenectady/Rensselaer 25
  • Broome 10
  • Dutchess/Ulster 20
  • Monroe 20
  • Nassau/Suffolk 20
  • Onondaga/Oneida 25
  • Sullivan/Orange 25
