Solicitation Profile
The Homeless Housing and Assistance Corporation (HHAC) and the New York State (NYS) 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. Not-for-profit corporations and their subsidiaries, charitable organizations, municipalities and public corporations are eligible to be funded.

The State Budget for Fiscal Year 2019-2020 included an appropriation of $64 million, of which $5 million may be reserved for the development of projects serving homeless persons with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, up to $1 million may be used for emergency shelter repairs in local social service districts with a population of less than five million.

This RFP is an open-ended procurement, meaning proposals will be accepted for consideration on a continuous basis until it is determined funds are no longer available for award or this methodology no longer serves a purpose for HHAC. Applications will be accepted beginning July 10, 2019 -11:00 am. Applications will not be accepted prior to this date and time.

On Monday June 17th, 2019 at 1:00pm HHAP will hold a live steamed Webcast to go over the RFP and highlight changes from the previous RFP. A link will be added to OTDA's website for the Webcast.
