OMH Request for Applications: Intensive Community-Based Services for Children/Youth

Application Due Date: November 1, 2021

Utilizing additional federal block grant funding received via the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021, the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) is providing one-time funding up to $50,000 to OMH providers to expand timely in-person and telehealth access to intensive community-based services for children and youth. Specifically, these resources are intended to support children and youth returning to school for 2021-2022 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and increase mental health provider service volume while expanding timely access to in-person and telehealth services that divert youth from higher level of care and/or allow safe stepdown from higher level of care. These programs will have an emphasis on higher intensity services, coordinated hand-off to a lower level of care, family engagement, and provision of services in the home or community, as appropriate.

There are two pools of eligible applicants for this funding:

1)     Existing providers identified as operating in good standing with OMH seeking expansion funds, including:

  • OMH-licensed Clinics serving children/adolescents to expand or create a fast-track for access to in-person and telehealth clinic services for children/youth presenting to Emergency Department, CPEP, or mobile crisis, or discharging from Inpatient Psychiatry Stay, Residential Treatment Facility, or Crisis Residence/Respite

  • OMH-licensed Child/Adolescent Partial Hospital Programs
  • OMH State Aid funded Home-Based Crisis Intervention (HBCI) Programs

2)     Existing providers identified as operating in good standing with OMH seeking start-up funds for one of the following:
