Contracts for services to New York nonprofit organizations, government entities, and tribal organizations to coordinate housing for domestic violence victims. Required registrations may take up to five days to complete. Some applicants must be prequalified before submitting an application. The housing navigator position will “bridge the gap” between domestic violence services and housing providers in order to ensure that the housing needs of domestic violence victims are met.

Additionally, housing navigators will have a shared goal of maximizing resources in order to support eventual long-term housing for victims of domestic violence. This position will require community coordination experience and general knowledge of housing programs or resources. Funding may cover all or part of a staff position.

Navigators will work with victims/survivors within the ESD region to help them access available resources and support for housing beyond shelter. They will also work with domestic violence advocates within the ESD region to help them better understand and assist with their clients’ needs around housing. Navigators will also be responsible for comprehensive reporting on housing outcomes and obstacles to success.

Twenty housing navigators will be located across the ten ESD regions across the state. These navigators will be responsible for providing services/support to victims/survivors and domestic violence advocates in the following region:

  • New York City (5 counties/boroughs): Bronx, Kings (Brooklyn), New York (Manhattan), Queens, and Richmond (Staten Island)
  • Long Island (2 counties): Nassau and Suffolk
