Expanding Access to Overdose Prevention and Naloxone Services for Justice-Involved New Yorkers
Response Due Date: 2/15/19
This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by the Fund for Public Health in New York, on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) to solicit proposals from NYS certified Opioid Overdose Prevention Programs (OOPPs) or organizations that meet the criteria to become NYS certified OOPPs to provide opioid overdose prevention education and naloxone distribution in New York City. Funding will support organizations providing services to justice-involved individuals that wish to increase access to overdose prevention education and naloxone distribution for those at risk of an opioid overdose, and to their families, friends and loved ones. Priority will be given to organizations that can document their ability to reach individuals involved in the criminal justice system, particularly those with experience engaging with courts (particularly drug courts), individuals at/leaving arraignment, individuals on probation or parole, and/or individuals recently released from jail or prison (reentry/discharge planning).
This RFP is not intended for syringe services programs.
