Solicitation Profile
The Office of Mental Health (OMH) announces this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development and operation of 7 Enhanced Young Adult Housing programs located throughout New York State for young adults with a serious mental illness (SMI). Each opportunity consists of Apartment Treatment units (5 or 10) and 20 scattered-site supportive housing units. The target population for all seven programs is young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 with serious mental illness who are coming from an institutional setting or community residence, leaving foster care, or are homeless. Some individuals may have a co-occurring substance use disorder (SUD) and be at various stages of recovery.

The Enhanced Young Adult Housing program is intended to help young adults with SMI transition from institutional settings, community residences, foster care, and homelessness; improve access to behavioral health and community resources; pursue vocational/educational goals; and develop real-world skills that will support them on the path forward as independent adults. Many of these young adults do not have the sufficient skills needed to successfully live independently in the community. This program will provide additional assistance, including enhanced case management, real- world skill building, vocational/educational support, and a peer to peer supports and services.
