On August 5, 2022, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and Health Research Inc. (HRI) announced the availability of funding through a Request for Proposals (RFP) on the New York State Rape Prevention and Education Program Health Equity Capacity Assessment. The RFP makes $128,444.00 available for one organization or consultant. The grant will be completed within two fiscal cycles from December 1, 2022 to January 31, 2023 (2 months), and from February 1, 2023 to June 30, 2023 (5 months).
The purpose of this funding announcement is to strengthen the RPE Program’s ability to understand and address inequities that may create disproportionate burdens on entities charged with addressing sexual violence, and which may inform implementation of primary prevention strategies that incorporate social determinants of health to advance health equity. The organization or consultant will conduct a health equity capacity assessment to determine current capacity to enhance and expand health equity work. The assessment should reflect current internal capacity to meet the current and future program needs related to advancing health equity; data availability, use of available data, and additional data needs to advance health equity; and current capacity to provide training and technical assistance on health equity; and opportunities for improvement. Finally, the organization or consultant will provide training to the NYSDOH on advancing health equity within sexual violence prevention.
Applications will be accepted from public or private organizations, not-for-profit health and human service organizations, and consultants or consulting firms. Preference will be given to Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises.
Applications are due by September 5, 2022 at 5:00 pm. Please submit any questions to email@example.com.
