The Dormitory Authority State of the State of New York (“DASNY”), in consultation with New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (“NYS OPRHP”),  is releasing this Request for Information (“RFI”) to determine interest and solicit information from municipalities, local recreation commissions, not-for-profit organizations, pool vendors, and contractors authorized to do business in New York State that are interested in participating in the New York Statewide Investment in More Swimming (NY SWIMS) initiative, a new competitive grant program to expand access to safe swimming across the state. The FY2025 Executive Budget includes $150 million in capital funding for NY SWIMS grants.  NY SWIMS grants can be used to fund the design and construction, renovation, or assembly of swimming pools along with other related capital expenses, including but not limited to, site infrastructure, land acquisition, ancillary splash pads, diving boards and slides, bathrooms and changing rooms, concessions, and other features that create value for local communities. 

This RFI is a formal, non-competitive informational inquiry that is being released to obtain market information, desire, and input on services provided in connection with the NY SWIMS program.  Submittal of an RFI is not a condition for future consideration as a grantee or potential provider of the services contemplated herein.  Consequently, it is understood and agreed that no obligation or commitment is made by DASNY or NYS OPRHP to any Respondent submitting a Response to this RFI.

The information collected through this RFI will inform subsequent procurements to advance the NY SWIMS grant program. It is anticipated that DASNY and NYS OPRHP will issue one or more Request for Applications for municipalities and not-for-profit organizations to advance public pool construction and renovation, temporary or movable pop-up pools and innovative pool projects with an emphasis on underserved neighborhoods across the state once funding is allocated in the FY2025 Enacted Budget.
