Connecting Youth to Mental Health Supports - Suicide Prevention


Description:

UPDATE/ANNOUNCEMENT 1/25/24

Please be advised there were a couple of errors in the Grants Gateway build for the “Connecting Youth to Mental Health Supports – Suicide Prevention” (OMH01-CYMHSP-2023) RFP:

  • Question 6.7 in Grants Gateway states "Financial Assessment - 20 point" and has a text box with a 4,000 character cap. This was an error and the indication for Response Type should have been N/A, as no response to 6.7 is required. The fix to this is in order to get past this question without receiving an error message, you will have to type “Not Applicable” in the response box that appears. The appropriate responses to this section is to provide the requested template uploads in response to Questions 6.7a and 6.7b.
  • Question 6.7a (Budget/Appendix B) has errors in it specific to the funding amounts available. The RFP itself has the correct funding listed and this is what should be budgeted for: Up to $680,000 for serving New York City counties and up to $580,000 for serving counties outside of NYC is available annually.

For any applicant that has submitted their applications to Grants Gateway already, if you choose to, you do have the opportunity to have your application returned to you for any work you feel needs to be done to address these issues (if any). NOTE: all requests to have your application returned must be made in writing to the Grants Gateway Help Desk (grantsgateway@its.ny.gov). The request must include the following Attestation – “We attest to understanding and acknowledge that if we request to have the application returned to us for additional work, it must be returned by the new deadline of 2/5/23 at 2:00 PM and that our original timely submission is irrelevant/not applicable”.

In order to provide enough notification of these errors and allow for appropriate time to address in applications, the due date for this RFP will be extended to Monday, February 5th (2/5/24) at 2:00 PM.

NOTE – The Connecting Youth to Mental Health Supports – Trans Leadership, Staff, and Youth (CYMHS-T) RFP due will not be extended. The due date remains Wednesday, January 31st (1/31/24) at 2:00 PM.

UPDATE/ANNOUNCEMENT         12/12/24

Due to the fact that applicants will not be able to work on and/or complete Prequalification Vaults (In Grants Gateway) beginning 12/15/23 – 1/16/24 (at which point, the Prequalification process will covert to and occur in the Statewide Financial System SFS), OMH is extending the due date of this RFP from 1/4/24 to 1/31/24.

 

The New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) is committed to preventing suicides. In recognition of the increased number of young people who have reported trying to die by suicide and the unique cultural factors that must be considered in the development of programs and suicide prevention strategies, OMH is announcing the availability of funds for non-profit agencies and tribal organizations serving at-risk youth and/or young adults from historically underserved, racial and ethnic minoritized populations, and/or LGBQIA+  groups, including those in rural areas.

These grants are intended to assist New York State non-profit community-based agencies or organizations with the development of innovative treatment-adjacent programming to provide culturally relevant suicide prevention interventions for Hispanic/Latino, Black/African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Native, LGBQIA+ youth and young adults. Grantees will be required to facilitate a mix of culturally tailored, evidence-based, evidence-informed and/or innovative programming and partner with an identified behavioral health provider to facilitate access to treatment services for individuals who need them. This program will be administered by OMH and developed in consultation with OMH’s Suicide Prevention Center of New York (SPCNY).

All applicants must be registered in Grants Gateway in order to apply. 

All NOT-FOR-PROFIT applicants must be Prequalified by Due Date and Time of RFP.
