Transitional Housing Concept Paper

The New York City Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ) seeks to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for transitional housing units for justice-involved individuals to avoid incarceration and or stabilize post release. Initial funding will cover approximately 250 beds in FY22 with the opportunity to scale up to 500 beds by FY23, subject to funding availability. Individuals may be engaged in an Alternative to Detention (ATD) program, an Alternative to Incarceration (ATI) program, Supervised Release, and/or reentry services upon release from incarceration. This transitional housing initiative will also ensure access for participants to supportive services including, but not limited to, assistance finding permanent housing, connections to substance use treatment, mental, behavioral,  physical health-care, paid transitional employment, and holistic case management.

Transitional housing will be offered to diverse groups of New York City residents, including special populations such as pregnant women, women with children, young people, older adults, LGBTQIA individuals, individuals with complex medical problems, individuals with Serious Mental Illness (SMI), and individuals engaged in the sex trade. Housing may be provided in a variety of models including, but not limited to, congregate, scatter site, and/or family unit settings.

The Concept Paper will be posted on the MOCJ website August 19, 2020 through October 2, 2020. Written comments in response to the Concept Paper should be submitted to MOCJProcurements@cityhall.nyc.gov. Please include “Transitional Housing Concept Paper” in the subject line.
