The New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) Bureau of Refugee and Immigrant Assistance (BRIA) issues this Request for Proposals (RFP) to award two 54–month contracts to provide services to Cuban and Haitian entrants and refugees.
All program funds are received from the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). OTDA/BRIA anticipates distributing approximately $751,000 in Services to Cuban and Haitian Entrants discretionary grant funds under this procurement. All program funds are subject to continued availability and State appropriation thereof. OTDA/BRIA intends to award one contract for service delivery in each of the following eligible counties: Monroe and Onondaga. As determined by the federal ORR, these are the two counties with the highest concentration of Cuban and Haitian entrants and refugees in New York State.
Use of these funds must relate to service provision to Cuban and Haitian entrants and refugees and be designed to maximize service potential in specific geographical regions to increase positive outcomes in:
- Obtaining immigration status documentation
- Filing for adjustment of status
- Accessing immigration legal services
- Addressing language barriers
