U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development: Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities
The Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Program aims to expand the supply of integrated affordable housing by providing Capital Advance funding for the development of permanent supportive rental housing for very-low-income persons with disabilities age 18 years or older. The program also provides project rental subsidies in the form of a Project Rental Assistance Contract (PRAC) to maintain ongoing affordability over the next forty years. These units provide persons with disabilities the opportunity to live with dignity and independence within the community in an integrated environment that provides access to appropriate and voluntary supportive services. Individuals with disabilities have historically faced discrimination that limited opportunities to live independently in the community and often required persons to live in institutions and other segregated settings.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) seeks to fund innovative Section 811 permanent supportive housing models that will be at the forefront of design, service delivery, and efficient use of federal resources. To meet this goal, HUD expects successful applications to demonstrate best practices or innovation in both physical design and supportive services. Proposals must promote the long-term housing security and facilitate community integration of persons with disabilities. HUD aims to provide Capital Advance funding to those applicants who use Capital Advance funds to leverage other financing sources to meet the goal of the development of permanent supportive housing and increasing the number of units produced per dollar of Federal resources.
Amount: Approximately $75,000,000 is available to make up to 30 awards of up to $25,000,000 each. The award must not exceed the development cost limits. See program notice for further details.
Eligibility: Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education; and sponsors or co-sponsors that are nonprofit organizations with a section 501(c)(3) tax exemption from the Internal Revenue Service, and who meet the threshold requirements contained in the program notice.
