New York State Community, Opportunity and Re-Investment Initiative

Issued by New York State Department of Health

Purpose of Solicitation

New York State is taking a comprehensive look at how multiple investments in a particular neighborhood can be better coordinated and aligned behind evidence-informed practice to increase impact and promote efficiencies. The Community, Opportunity and Re-Investment initiative (initiative) seeks to build the well-being of communities and assure that all New Yorkers have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and stable community from a supported childhood to a productive adulthood. This approach coordinates and builds on the combined knowledge and skills of multiple entities including state and local agencies, community residents and civic leaders. It recognizes that social problems are interconnected and so solutions must be as well. Service sectors addressed by this initiative include but are not limited to: public safety; housing; education; labor; economic development; health (including mental health); and children and family services.
