Request for Proposals for Center for Trauma Innovation

Posted in: News, Past Opportunities

Posted on January 23, 2020

The New York County District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is requesting proposals to develop and implement a Center for Trauma Innovation (CTI) in northern Manhattan.

The goal for the CTI is to address the needs of people exposed to trauma by enhancing and expanding trauma-informed and trauma-specific services and resources. The CTI will focus on communities of color that experience disproportionate rates of violence and have less access to trauma services. The CTI will offer culturally-competent, free, clinical and non-clinical trauma-specific services; provide training and technical assistance to local organizations and city agencies seeking to incorporate or enhance trauma-informed and trauma-specific practices; and establish a Trauma Innovation Learning Community that uplifts the CTI’s vision for safety, healing, and equity.

This solicitation and investment contributes to the CJII goals of improving public safety and enhancing fairness and efficiency in New York City’s justice system by providing services and supports to bolster community-led anti-violence efforts, support individuals in healing from trauma through trauma-informed and trauma-specific services, and reduce further contact with the criminal justice system. 

DANY anticipates total funding to be up to $8 million for a single award issued through this RFP, which will support the selected applicant to plan and implement the CTI and will not exceed 3.5 years, beginning in the summer of 2020.



  • The deadline to submit questions about this RFP is Monday, February 10, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Questions must be submitted through the CJII application portal at
  • The deadline to submit proposals has been extended to Monday, April 20, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Proposals must be submitted through the CJII application portal at

ISLG provides input to DANY, manages and provides guidance to the grantees funded under CJII, and conducts oversight and performance measurement throughout the lifetime of the initiative. All funds are administered through the Research Foundation of CUNY (Research Foundation).
