Request for Proposals (RFP) – Take Care New York 2024 Community Engagement – Broad Outreach Partners

The Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY) on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is seeking up to twenty Take Care New York (TCNY) Outreach Partners to engage community members through pre-designed activities to spark conversations on “What Creates Health?” in their neighborhoods to inform and create momentum for TCNY 2024 from October – December 2019. Each TCNY Outreach Partner can receive $2,000 per outreach event for a maximum of $8,000 for four events to lead activities for TCNY at community events between October – December 2019.


TCNY is the City’s blueprint for advancing health equity and giving everyone the chance to lead a healthier life. The last iteration, TCNY 2020, was released in Fall 2015, outlining objectives for the City to achieve by the year 2020. In early 2020, DOHMH will launch TCNY 2024, focused on achieving health equity and creating healthy communities by using a racial equity and a social justice lens, focusing on the social determinants of health such as housing, food, the built environment, community cohesion, and education.


TCNY 2024 will have three core functions:

  1. Instigate discussions among cross-sector stakeholders about what creates health and amplify the urgency of addressing health inequities;
  2. Build new and strengthen existing networks that can support the development of multi-sector collaborations with shared priorities around eliminating health inequities; and
  3. Catalyze action to ensure that stakeholders can effectively lead projects that will drive change in health inequities.


DOHMH aims to generate momentum and interest in TCNY 2024 through broad outreach in neighborhoods across New York City. Individuals and groups who can engage large numbers of New Yorkers (100+) through community events are invited to apply to become TCNY Broad Outreach Partners.

Request for Proposals (RFP) – Activating Community Coalitions to Prevent Alcohol and Other Drug Use among LGBTQ+ and Other Youth in New York City

The purpose of this RFP is to select community coalitions demonstrating capacity to create community-level changes that reduce risk factors and promote protective factors to prevent alcohol and other drug use among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer (LGBTQ+) and other youth. This RFP will enable the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), using the Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY) as the fiscal agent, to provide financial and technical support to seven coalitions from the cohort that participated in Building Community Capacity to Prevent Substance Misuse among LGBTQ and Other Youth in NYC. The purpose of this initiative is to prevent or delay substance use initiation among LGBTQ+ and other youth (primary prevention). Further, the public health model for this funding opportunity focuses on environmental prevention strategies such as changing policies or community conditions to reduce risk factors and promote protective factors. Therefore, proposals should focus on community level changes to the environment that may prevent or delay substance use initiation among LGBTQ+ and other youth.


Funding to support this work is from DOHMH to FPHNY via the Negotiated Acquisition contract.
