On November 3rd, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development and operation of Intensive Mobile Treatment (IMT) teams. The IMT model provides mobile, flexible, and interdisciplinary treatment to adults in New York City who have frequent contact with the mental health, criminal justice, and/or homeless systems, and who have been unsuccessfully served by the existing service system.
Approximately $69 million in total funding over ten years will be awarded for the operation of seven IMT teams located in the five boroughs of New York City. The goal of IMT teams is to improve enrolled individuals’ quality of life through engagement in treatment, rehabilitation, housing, and support services that promote wellness, recovery, community integration, and community safety.
