To address certain gaps in health equity, OASAS proposes to fund substance use/misuse prevention-focused coalitions to engage vulnerable and isolated communities, who are connected by cultural identity, in developing and implementing environmental change prevention strategies in these communities.
NYS OASAS through its fiscal agent, RFMH, will issue up to six awards for a maximum of $175,000 each. Priority will be given to coalitions who serve the following communities: veterans, transitional youth (i.e., transitioning out of foster care or juvenile justice system), new Americans (i.e., immigrants, migrants, refugees), people over the age of 50 years, and/or people with disabilities in New York State. The maximum amount of funds to be awarded is $1,050,000.
- Not-for-profit community coalitions or not-for-profit agencies that have experience in prevention coalition building but do not currently have county, federal, or state funding for the coalition and its activities.
- If the coalition does not have 501c 3 status or does not have an established fiscal agent with 501c 3 status, an OASAS-funded provider must be a part of the coalition and act as the fiscal agent for the community coalition.
- Applicant are required to have or obtain a Unique Entity ID number from SAM.GOV prior to receiving a contract.
- Proprietary entities are not eligible.
