The primary purpose of the Section 811 PRA Program is to identify, stimulate, and support innovative state-level strategies that will transform and increase housing for extremely low-income persons with disabilities while also making available appropriate support and services.
HUD is seeking to
support collaborations between State Housing and Health and Human Service/Medicaid Agencies that have resulted or will result in increased access to 2 of 55 affordable permanent supportive housing units – new and existing– with access to appropriate services.
Many States have already developed partnerships to address this need, and the Department hopes to further support these efforts as well as to incentivize additional states to develop similar collaborative efforts.
This Section 811 PRA NOFA will allow HUD to identify and support successful and promising state models.
This program provides states with the flexibility to award and administer these funds to address the shortage of affordable and integrated housing for persons with disabilities.
Housing agencies may either directly administer the rental assistance contracts to eligible properties or contract with other qualified parties to administer the long-term rental assistance contracts.
