The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a combined $112 million available to expand the supply of permanent affordable housing for very low-income persons with disabilities.
Funding is available for the two components of the Section 811 Program:
- Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities (Capital Advance), and
- Project Rental Assistance.
The available funding includes $75 million in capital advances for the development of new supportive housing for this vulnerable population and $37 million in rental assistance to eligible housing agencies working closely with state health and human services or Medicaid agencies.
