The New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) invests in a network of community based organizations and programs to alleviate the effects of poverty and provide opportunities for New Yorkers and communities to flourish.
DYCD contracts with various community-based organizations that provide services and activities for youth and low-income populations.
Agencies will use the Ordering Email addresses that have been provided by vendors in the Payee Information Portal (PIP) for all future solicitations or notifications. Email is the default means of communication for City agencies' Invitations for Bids (IFBs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and their notices of availability. Notifications by paper mail, fax, hand delivery, or otherwise, will only be available upon request to the Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD).
Your "Ordering Email Address" will be used by the City for notification and solicitation purposes. To ensure that the City has your up-to-date email address, it is advised that you log into PIP and review this information.
Establishing a PIP account can provide your business with additional benefits such as allowing you to view your financial transactions with the City and enrolling in the citywide bidders lists based on commodity code.
If you have any difficulty creating or updating your account in PIP, please reach out to DYCD's ACCO Help Desk at ACCO@dycd.nyc.gov. If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor's Office of Contract Services (MOCS) at MOCSOutreach@cityhall.nyc.gov.

Purpose of the RFI
The Department of Education in collaboration with the Department of Youth and Community Development has released a RFI to support this effort. The City is interested in obtaining information about what capacity various organizations have to provide in person services for preschool youth (ages 3 and 4) and school-age youth in grades K-8. The City is also interested in securing appropriate space in which to host these programs throughout New York City. The City is looking to add approximately 11,000 seats/slots for 3 and 4-year olds and 50,000 seats/slots for children in grades K-8. Each seat/slot will serve, on average, 2 participants throughout the week (Monday – Friday), based on the proposed school schedule. It is anticipated that this new capacity will be added on a rolling basis, throughout the fall of 2020.
