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.

HUD AND HHS PARTNER TO PROVIDE PERMANENT HOUSING TO LOW-INCOME PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

To prevent people with disabilities from homelessness the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) today announced nearly $98 million in funding for 13 state housing agencies for rental assistance to low-income persons with disabilities, many of whom are transitioning out of institutional settings or are at high risk of homelessness.

HUD’s support of these state agencies is made possible through the Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Demonstration Program (PRA Demo) which enables persons with disabilities who earn less than 30 percent of median income to live in integrated mainstream settings.
