PLEASE NOTE: Addendum #3 has been posted with the RFA.

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) announce the availability of funds under the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program IV (SHCFTP IV), as established pursuant to Section 2825-g of the Public Health Law (PHL), accompanying capital appropriations, and Section 1680-r of the Public Authorities Law (PAL), to provide grants in support of capital projects that facilitate health care transformation activities. Grants shall not be made to support general day-to-day operating costs not related to the start-up expenses of the Eligible Project.

Subdivision 4 of Section 2825-g of the PHL and Chapter 54 of the Laws of 2022 authorized up to $200,000,000 for emergency department modernizations of regional significance. See attached RFA for further definitions of Eligible Applicants for the SHCFTP IV.

To receive funding, the Eligible Applicant must demonstrate how the proposed use of the grant will strengthen and protect continued access to health care services in communities. Eligible Applicants should describe:

i. Steps to be taken to promote an integrated, patient-centered model of health care delivery or to create a financially sustainable system of care or to preserve or expand the ongoing availability of essential health care services to the people of the community or communities served by the Eligible Applicant.
ii. How the Eligible Project will maintain or improve the financial condition of the Eligible Applicant.
iii. An estimate of the total costs of carrying out health care transformation activities (other than the Eligible Project as hereafter defined) and the sources of funding for such costs.
iv. Steps to be taken to engage the community in the development of the Eligible Project.

The Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program ended as of March 31, 2020. Still, health care services developed as a result of the Eligible Project should be consistent with DSRIP Program principles of improving core population health, patient outcomes and patient experience, as well as incorporate, as part of a sustainable business model, a transition to a payment system which emphasizes cost efficiency and quality outcomes (value) over service volume. In addition, the Eligible Project shall advance the goals of health equity and reducing racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare delivery.

Applicants are hereby advised that, in accordance with Public Health Law 2825-g and Chapter 54 of the Laws of 2022, awards made under this RFA are determined on a non-competitive, discretionary basis. Funding will be awarded at the discretion of the Commissioner of Health for purposes described in this RFA. Without limitation to this authorization, the Commissioner of Health may consult with the President of DASNY, NYSDOH and DASNY professional staff, and any other internal or external experts or local health care constituents as appropriate from time to time and/or at any time in the evaluation of applications received pursuant to this RFA. The decision to award, or not to award, or to award a grant at a funding level that is less than the amount requested by the applicant, is discretionary and cannot be appealed.

As these awards are discretionary, there is no right of appeal and the decision of the Commissioner of Health is final. As such, applicants are advised to put forward their best efforts in thoroughly completing and fulfilling all the requirements of the RFA. While the award is discretionary, the criteria listed in PHL 2825-g will be utilized to make the awards.

The decision not to fund an application will be communicated by letter. Based on the number of applicants, NYSDOH shall have the sole discretion of whether or not to provide an opportunity for non-successful applicants to request a debriefing to be conducted after the announcement of awards. Comparisons with other grant applications will not be made during a debriefing.

NYSDOH’s determination of applicable terms and conditions of award or a denial of a request to change the terms and conditions is discretionary and not subject to appeal.
