Grants to USA State, regional, and local housing agencies to increase housing and support for people with very low-income and disabilities. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for project-based rental assistance for housing agencies.

This Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program seeks to identify, stimulate, and support sustainable state approaches that will transform the provision of housing for persons with disabilities while providing access to appropriate supports and services. 

These funds are available to be used as project-based rental assistance for housing units integrated within multifamily properties that are set-aside for extremely low-income persons with disabilities who are eligible for community-based long-term care services and supports provided under a State Medicaid Program or other comparable long-term services program. Awards also allow limited use for administrative costs. Any other use of funds is prohibited. 

This Section 811 PRA program will support successful and promising state partnership models that have been developed to increase the number of permanent housing units for persons with disabilities with access to appropriate services. NOTE: This is not a voucher program. 

This NOFA allows states to creatively combine or bundle Section 811 PRA funds with existing state-administered affordable rental housing finance and development programs. Housing agencies may either directly administer this project rental assistance to supported properties or in instances where there is limited experience, housing agencies are encouraged to partner/contract with other qualified parties to administer the long-term project rental assistance contracts. 

A major threshold requirement of the program is that the state housing agency must have a focused partnership with the State Health and Human Service/Medicaid Agencies that will be responsible for ensuring that residents have access to the services and supports necessary to live in the community.

Funding of up to $37,000,000 is available through this NOFA.

HUD has the budget authority to award up to a total of $112,000,000 to support the new affordable housing units for persons with disabilities. This NOFA will make approximately $37,000,000 available to state entities and the second NOFA will be for the Section 811 Capital Advance NOFA which will make approximately $75,000,000 directly available to non-profit entities.
