FAQs Posted on the NORC/Neighborhood NORC RFA

The New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) posted 33 pages of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Request for Applications (RFA) for the Classic Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (Classic NORC) Program and Neighborhood Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (Neighborhood NORC) Program. The FAQs were posted two days later than originally intended. LeadingAge NY submitted numerous questions. On pages 9-12, several questions were raised on funding amounts for only 12 NORCs and 12 Neighborhood NORCs, when currently there are 16 NORCs and 13 Neighborhood NORCs. Questions were also raised on conducting a needs assessment. NYSOFA has included a Word version of the sample needs assessment survey tool on their website. Please review pages 30-33, which identify the designated programs in the state.

NYSOFA held a 20-minute application webinar on Dec. 8th. To review the Request for Applications (RFA) Webinar for the Classic Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (Classic NORC) Program and Neighborhood Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (Neighborhood NORC) Program, click here.
