The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s (NYC Health Department) Center for Health Equity and Community Wellness announce the expansion of the Get the Good Stuff program to supermarkets in communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, racism, and disinvestment. Through Get the Good Stuff, New Yorkers participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can earn $0.01 in reward points for every $0.01 spent in SNAP benefits on eligible fresh, frozen, canned and dried fruits, vegetables and beans.

The intent of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to identify up to eight supermarkets with capacity to electronically distribute incentives to shoppers through their point-of-sale systems. Supermarkets may apply for more than one store location; however, if applying for more than one location, each location requires a separate and complete application.

The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health Department) are pleased to announce the creation of the HealthyNYC Learning Collaboratives, a new multi-year initiative which aims to advance the City’s campaign to improve and extend the average lifespan of all New Yorkers.

The collaboratives will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to focus on the biggest drivers of premature death, including: cardiometabolic conditions (including cardiometabolic disease and diabetes-related diseases), screenable cancers, overdose, suicide, maternal mortality, violence, and COVID-19. The purpose is to align stakeholder program and policy efforts toward priority strategies that will have the greatest impact on increasing life expectancy. Partners will also be provided technical assistance to guide them in implementing evidence-based practices and applying a health equity lens to ensure that all New Yorkers enjoy the opportunity to live a healthier, longer life.

This Request for Proposals (RFP) seeks a technical advisor (TA) to lead the design, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the learning collaborative initiative. In partnership with the NYC Health Department, the technical advisor will: conduct an assessment to identify key stakeholders and assess their needs; co-design the strategy for a 12-month initiative; enroll collaborative members; organize and facilitate in-person and virtual convenings and technical support activities; design and disseminate tools and resources; review, and incorporate evaluation data to ensure progress in meeting goals and objectives, and; develop a final impact report.

Award Details

The maximum amount of funding available to support this project is $4,500,000. This scope of work will be for a 24-month period, beginning in July 2024 and ending in June 2026.
