Request for Proposals (RFP)

RFEI for Mural Arts Project

The Fund for Public Health in New York, Inc. (FPHNY) on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is seeking expressions of interest from mental health service providers to become partners in its program, The New York City Mural Arts Project (NYCMAP).


The aim of the program is to use murals as a communication tool for raising awareness and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness, and to get the broader community where the mural will be placed engaged in resiliency building and social cohesion, particularly around mental health.


FPHNY anticipates selecting three (3) mental health service providers and three (3) muralists (a separate Request for Proposal for muralists) to work closely with Peer Specialists, mental health program participants and various community members over a period of nine months to create and install three (3) mental health-themed murals installed in neighborhoods facing significant mental health disparities, and/or high rates of poverty and social determinants. Each NYC Mural Arts partnership will last from October 2018 through June 2019. This RFEI is soliciting three (3) Mental Health Service Providers.


Please read this Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) thoroughly. Interested organizations must fully complete the application included in this packet.
