RFI for Behavioral Health in Schools Project

The Jewish Board, on behalf of OneCity Health and three other Performing Provider Systems, has announced a Request for Information (RFI) for Behavioral Health Agencies to help implement our new Behavioral Health in Schools project. This program seeks to put mental health and substance abuse prevention and early identification into 100 middle and high schools throughout New York City.

The attached RFI (with cover letter and budget spreadsheet one and budget spreadsheet two) is to provide services to either a cluster of five schools in the fall (then 10 schools in the spring) in Brooklyn or to five schools in the fall (and 10 in the spring) in the Bronx. An agency is permitted to apply for both the Brooklyn and the Bronx clusters. Additional RFI’s will be released later in the year to expand the number of school clusters and expand the region to include clusters in Queens and Manhattan.

In addition to OneCity Health, The Jewish Board is also coordinating on behalf of Bronx Health Access, Bronx Partners for Healthy Communities and Community Care of Brooklyn. This solicitation seeks to identify appropriately qualified contractors to provide quality work in one or more school clusters.

A pre-proposal conference is scheduled for June 8 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. at 135 West 50th Street, sixth floor, NY, NY 10020.

Proposals are due on June 20, 2016 at 12:00 p.m.
