The Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) is proud to release three Runway and Homeless Youth Services (RHY) Request for Proposals (RFP). Through these RFPs, DYCD is seeking appropriately qualified not-for-profit organizations to operate these services for runaway and homeless youth and youth at risk for homelessness in New York City and their families. Please see below for more information regarding each of the RFPs.
The primary purpose of the Drop-In Centers is to prevent youth homelessness or minimize its duration. Drop-In Centers have a broad role. They are resource hubs for the whole borough in which they are located, and they conduct outreach, provide information, and educate the public about youth homelessness and its causes. They also provide a range of direct services for RHY and youth at risk for homelessness and their families.
The purpose of Street Outreach is to help prevent youth homelessness or minimize its duration by distributing information to homeless youth and youth at risk for homelessness about available services and responding to their urgent needs, e.g., for food, clothing, first aid, transportation, etc. Street Outreach workers help youth access the range of RHY services funded by DYCD including arranging for transportation to a crisis shelter or other safe location and offering referrals to services that can assist them.
Please note this RFP will be closing on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at 2:00pm. All proposals must be submitted in HHS Accelerator by this due date and time. No additional proposals will be accepted after.
The purpose of crisis shelters is to provide emergency shelter and services with the primary goal of reuniting youth with their families, or, if that is not possible, finding them appropriate longer-term placements.
TILs offer transitional housing placements for youth (and in some cases, their dependent children) who cannot, currently, return home to their families and have been assessed as suitable for programs designed to teach independent living skills.
The pre-proposal conference for all three RFPs will be held on Monday December 18, 2017 at 2:00pm at the Department of Youth and Community Development; 2 Lafayette Street, 14th floor Auditorium New York, NY 10007.
The due date for the RHY Drop-in Center and RHY Street Outreach RFPs is January 10, 2018 at 2:00PM in the HHS Accelerator system.
The RHY Crisis Shelters and Transitional Independent Living Program is an open-ended RFP that will remain open for an indefinite period. While there is no prescribed due date for proposal submission, to ensure that additional beds will be operating as of July 1, 2018, the due date for the first round of proposals for FY2019 will be January 10, 2018 at 2:00 PM.
All proposals must be submitted through the HHS Accelerator system in the manner set forth in the “Procurement” section of the system by pre-qualified organizations. Visit the HHS Accelerator website to learn more and to apply.
Questions regarding this RFP should be emailed to email@example.com indicating “RHY” in the subject line no later than December 29, 2017.
