Connections to Care – integrate mental health services into programs serving low-income communities
The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, with the assistance of the Center for Economic Opportunity and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, is proud to announce the release of the Connections to Care Request for Proposals. Connections to Care is a $30 million public-private partnership to integrate mental health services into selected programs serving low-income communities. The Mayor’s Fund is seeking proposals from qualified 501(c)(3) community-based organizations, in partnership with licensed mental health providers, to implement the Connections to Care model for at-risk populations.
Target service populations include low-income (1) expectant mothers and parents of children 0-4; (2) out of school, out of work young adults ages 16-24; and/or (3) unemployed or underemployed low-income working-age adults ages 18 and over receiving workforce development services. Connections to Care is expected to last five years, and is a program and research study of the federal Social Innovation Fund of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
