HUD RELEASES SECTION 811 NOFA: $85 MILLION AVAILABLE FOR NEW INTEGRATED HOUSING FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

Posted by Pam Blanton on May 16, 2012

Summary:
Through the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program, HUD provides funding to develop and subsidize rental housing with the availability of supportive services for very low-income adults with disabilities.

Purpose:
The Section 811 program allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services.

Type of Assistance:

The newly reformed Section 811 program is authorized to operate in two ways: (1) the traditional way, by providing interest-free capital advances and operating subsidies to nonprofit developers of affordable housing for persons with disabilities; and (2) providing project rental assistance to state housing agencies. The assistance to the state housing agencies can be applied to new or existing multifamily housing complexes funded through different sources, such as Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Federal HOME funds, and other state, Federal, and local programs.  In FY 2012, no funding was appropriated for traditional 811 capital advances.
