Grants will Support Essential Health Care Services Throughout New York State.

Governor Kathy Hochul today launched a request for proposals making $950 million in additional state funding available to support projects that will transform and secure New York State’s health care delivery system. Administered by the State Department of Health and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program will help to improve patient care by supporting high-quality facilities serving the inpatient, primary care, mental health, substance use disorder and long-term care needs of communities throughout the state. 

“New Yorkers deserve access to quality health care and a strong, stable, and equitable health care system,” Governor Hochul said. “These grants will provide critical funding for improvements at hospitals and other facilities throughout our state to ensure they deliver the quality-of-care New Yorkers deserve.” 

The funding will award projects throughout the state. Interested organizations can find eligibility information through either the New York State Contract Reporter, or within the Grants Gateway.  

State Health Commissioner James McDonald said, “These funds will enable our health care providers and facilities to further modernize, integrate and protect health care services to ensure that New Yorkers receive access to the medical care they require now and for future generations. New York is a national leader in providing health care thanks to Governor Hochul’s dedication to ensuring our health care systems have the resources necessary to deliver the best care possible for all New Yorkers.” 

Three requests for proposals (RFP) were issued, including:

  • Up to $250 million from Statewide IV to drive transformative health care investments

  • Up to $650 million to support investments in technology and cybersecurity in health care facilities

  • Up to $50 million for nursing home innovation projects

The Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program is aimed at supporting efforts to reduce health care costs and improve the health outcomes of New Yorkers by expanding access to inpatient, primary, preventative, and other ambulatory care services as part of regionally integrated health care delivery systems. These funds are also focused on projects which will help ensure the financial sustainability of safety net health care providers, and the preservation or expansion of essential health care services. 

The RFPs announced today include funding under the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program IV and the first phase of Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program V. In total, New York State has awarded nearly $4 billion in total funding through capital programs.
