Issue Date:
05/30/2023, updated 04/02/2024

The Homeless Housing and Assistance Corporation (HHAC) and the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) invite applicants to apply for funding under the Homeless Housing and Assistance Program (HHAP).

The Homeless Housing and Assistance Program, enacted by Chapter 61 of the Laws of 1983 and set out in Sections 41 through 44 of the Social Services Law, authorizes a program of State-funded grants or loans to acquire, construct or rehabilitate housing to expand the supply of housing for low-income persons who are, or would otherwise be, homeless. A homeless person is defined as an undomiciled person (whether alone or as a member of a family) who is unable to secure permanent and stable housing without special assistance, as determined by the Commissioner of OTDA. Non-profit corporations and their subsidiaries, charitable organizations, municipalities and public corporations are eligible to be funded.

This is an open-ended RFP. Proposals will be accepted for consideration on a continuous basis until funds are no longer available for award or until HHAC suspends or terminates the open-ended RFP.

Note: The contact information in the following documents has been updated: 2023 HHAP RFP, 2023 HHAP Application, 2023 HHAP Existing Emergency Shelter Repairs Application, and 2023 HHAP Concept Paper Guidelines. Please use the updated contact information going forward.
