Via our friend John Maltby of NY Alliance and sent to NY State Housing Navigators:
Tricia Downes, Senior Policy Analyst from OPWDD Homes and Community Living Division of Person Centered Supports met with the latest Housing Navigator class last week to discuss ISH and followed up with the information below:
“As discussed during last week’s Housing Navigator class, I am forwarding information regarding OPWDD’s Integrated Supportive Housing (ISH) program.
- The most recent application for capital to support ISH projects is attached; a new version should be issued in the next couple of weeks, but the information is largely the same, so this is still a good reference document.
- Following is a link to an informational webinar that Alex Brooks and I conducted in March 2018: https://opwdd.ny.gov/news_and_publications/news/opwdd-integrated-supportive-housing-webinar-recording-and-powerpoint
- Following is a link to the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI) RFP: https://www.omh.ny.gov/omhweb/rfp/2018/esshi/
“Any Housing Navigators with additional questions can reach either me or Alex Brooks by email.
Please see the attached application for OPWDD capital funding for projects applying for larger funding under NYS Homes and Community Renewal’s (HCR’s) 2017 Unified Funding RFP. Please note the due date of 4:30 pm on Monday, October 16 for all applications, which must be submitted to the following email box: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions regarding this application, please contact Patricia Downes or Alexander Brooks of OPWDD Office of Home and Community Living at 518-473-1973.
