The New York State (NYS) Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) announces a funding opportunity from the New York State homeless housing programs fund appropriated in the State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2017-18 Aid to Localities budget for the New York State Supportive Housing Program (NYSSHP). OTDA will make funding available statewide for eligible projects. Applications will be accepted from units of local government, local social services districts, tribal organizations and nonprofit corporations. NYSSHP funding is intended to support the provision of services that assist residents of supportive housing to remain stably housed so as not to enter or re-enter the homeless services system.
To qualify for funding, a private nonprofit organization must be one which is exempt from taxation under subtitle A of the Internal Revenue Code, has an accounting system, a voluntary board of directors, and practices nondiscrimination in the provision of assistance. Additionally, a nonprofit corporation applying to OTDA for funds should provide certifications from both the local social service district and the local Continuum of Care body supporting the project.
Current NYSSHP grantees under contract need not apply unless it is for eligible units that are not currently under contract.
Contracts awarded under NYSSHP may include federal TANF funding, which has a Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number of 93.558.
