Grants to New York governmental or nonprofit health care facilities to support reproductive health and family planning services. Some applicants are required to prequalify prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to support services for individuals of reproductive age, with a priority focus on low-income, uninsured, and underinsured individuals. Preference will be given to applicants that demonstrate a minimum of five years of experience in the administration of a comprehensive family planning and reproductive health services program in compliance with New York State Family Planning Program requirements.

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), Bureau of Women, Infant and Adolescent Health (BWIAH), announces the availability of funds to support the provision of comprehensive family planning and reproductive health services. Organizations funded through this RFA will comprise the New York State Comprehensive Family Planning and Reproductive Health Program (NYSFPP) and support the program’s overarching goals to improve sexual and reproductive health and birth outcomes, partner with individuals to support their reproductive health goals, and reduce racial and ethnic disparities in sexual and reproductive health outcomes.

While the NYSFPP has a statewide focus and seeks to fund organizations throughout the state, it is expected that funded programs will target the geographic areas most impacted by health disparities and inequities within their proposed catchment area. To the extent possible, applicants should serve zip code areas identified in Attachment 1: Perinatal High Risk Zip Codes where rates for indicators related to unintended pregnancy and poor birth outcomes are high. For more information about Priority Populations and Communities, see pages 6-7 of the RFP in Supporting Documents below. 

For Project Narrative/Work Plan Outcomes and Program Specific Requirements, see pages 11-13 of the RFP in Supporting Documents below.
