NYC Crisis Management System Initiative Concept Paper

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Safety (ONS) plans to release its forthcoming Request for Proposals (RFP) for the NYC Crisis Management System Initiative in the fall of 2020. The RFP seeks community-based partners to implement evidence-based anti-gun violence interventions that engage youth and young adults exposed to high risk factors and to positively amplify the culture of peace in communities most affected by gun violence. The core components of CMS include: (1) deployment of the Cure Violence public health model of violence intervention, (2) school-based conflict mediation, and (3) therapeutic mental health services.

ONS initiatives put communities at the center of creating and sustaining public safety. Launched in 2014, the Mayor’s Action Plan for Neighborhood Safety (MAP) is a comprehensive place-based approach employing participatory mechanisms and coordinating resources to respond to communities’ public safety priorities and reduce crime around 15 NYC public housing developments that historically have experienced the highest rates of crimes. Atlas is a strength-based, voluntary set of therapeutic and social supports delivered by trusted community-based organizations to engage and empower individuals with open court cases and heightened risk factors for involvement in violence. The Office to Prevent Gun Violence (OPGV) synchronizes the city’s anti-gun violence initiatives, including the Crisis Management System, and amplifies the leadership of community-based solutions to support safe, empowered, and interconnected communities.

The Concept Paper will be posted August 21, 2020 through October 4, 2020.  Written comments in response to the Concept Paper should be submitted to MOCJProcurements@cityhall.nyc.gov. Please include “NYC Crisis Management System Initiative Concept Paper” in the subject line.
