DYCD is proud to release the following concept papers. Please see below for further details.
Residential and Non-Residential Runaway and Homeless Youth Services Program
This concept paper is the precursor to two Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to be issued by the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) for contracts starting July 1, 2018. The RFPs will seek appropriately qualified nonprofit organizations to provide services for runaway and homeless youth (RHY) and youth at risk for homelessness in New York City (City) and their families. One RFP (RHY Non-Residential Services) will cover Drop-In Centers and Street Outreach Services. The other (RHY Residential Services) will cover Crisis Shelters and Transitional Independent Living (TIL) Programs. DYCD encourages all to provide feedback as this will assist with our forthcoming RFP, anticipated to be released in the fall.
