OASAS/OMH Webinar on reissue of RFP of Supportive Crisis Stabilization Centers

March 16, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS) and the Office of Mental Health (OMH) issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the development of twelve (12) Supportive Crisis Stabilization Centers (SCSCs) in June 2022. The original proposal was for the development of three (3) SCSCs in the New York City Economic Development Region (EDR), and nine (9) SCSCs outside of New York City, one (1) in each of the remaining EDRs. In December 2022, a total of ten (10) providers were awarded.

 The Offices will reissue this RFP for the new development of SCSCs in the remaining uncovered regions, including one (1) in the Central New York EDR and one (1) in the Finger Lakes EDR.

The Central New York EDR is comprised of the following counties: Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, and Oswego. The Finger Lakes EDR is comprised of the following counties: Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates.

 In preparation for this reissuance, the Offices will host a forum to discuss potential barriers, address questions, and hear feedback from providers who may be interested in applying for the re-issued RFP in the Central New York and/or Finger Lakes EDRs.

Eligible applicants are not-for-profit agencies with 501(c) (3) incorporation or Public Benefit Corporations, including Peer-led organizations, who are licensed, certified, or otherwise authorized by OMH, OASAS, or the NYS Department of Health. Eligible agencies must have experience providing mental health and substance use treatment services to persons with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

All Crisis Stabilization Centers will be jointly certified by NYS OMH and OASAS under Part 600 Regulations.  Crisis Stabilization Centers are developed in collaboration with the communities they serve, including Local Mental Hygiene Directors, schools, community providers, law enforcement agencies, and other identified programs, to provide a comprehensive continuum of care for referrals and follow-up.  

 The forum will take place on Thursday, March 16, 2023, from 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM. The forum invitation link can be found below. Please register in advance of the forum to ensure you receive the link for attendance.
