Letters of Support/Linkage Agreements

Requesting a Letter of Support/Linkage Agreement

We recieve numerous requests from partners for Linkage Agreements and Letters of Support to assist in applications for grant/funding opportunities. In an effort to streamline these requests and ensure that we have adequate advance notice to meet deadlines, we have developed protocols for submitting and responding to all requests.

Please note:

  • All requests for a Letter of Support or Linkage Agreement from our office must be received **at least two weeks in advance** of the requested return date.
  • All requests will be reviewed for its relationship with domestic and gender-based violence and whether it is in line with the mission of our office. A Letter of Support or Linkage Agreement is not guaranteed. If we are unable to provide support, your agency will receive email notification from our General Counsel about the denial of the request, and a reason for the denial, as appropriate.

Indirect Cost Rate Funding Initiative

The City of New York launched the Indirect Cost Rate (ICR) Funding Initiative to assist health and human service providers contracting with the City. The Administration will fund individual community-based organizations’ requests for documented, indirect costs above the current ten percent ceiling with actions to be reflected in the Fiscal Year 2020 Adopted Budget. As of November 18, 2019, providers may initiate the indirect cost claiming process. For more information about the City's Indirect Cost Rate Funding Initiative, including the Provider Checklist, visit the Indirect Implementation page.
