The Questions and Answers document has been posted on 2/25/2019.

This Request for Proposals (RFP) includes funding from both the New York State William B. Hoyt Memorial Children and Family Trust Fund (Trust Fund) and the federal Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) program. Together, these initiatives are designed to support community-based programs with the goal of preventing abuse/maltreatment and/or preventing the recurrence of abuse/maltreatment; and improving outcomes for families at risk of or experiencing child abuse, and family violence in all its forms.

OCFS is seeking proposals that will demonstrate how the proposed program will impact our outcomes and improve the safety, permanency and well-being for children and families throughout New York State (NYS). Due to the complex issues facing families, better aligning public and private resources to support effective neighborhood-based interventions can create a continuum of care to improve outcomes for all community residents. OCFS relies on community-based services and the local departments of social services (LDSS) to help strengthen and support families. This partnership is crucial to improving the safety and well-being for children, youth and families in New York’s highest need communities. Additionally, the interplay between a child’s well-being and the parenting or caregiving environment is equally important. Attention must be paid to the family or caregiver’s well-being to encourage healthy family relationships and strengthen the attachment to a caring and reliable adult for children. True engagement of parents that is strength-based and empowers the parent to share responsibility for the safety, permanency and well-being of their child is critical.

Please see the RFP document for additional information and submission requirements.
