HUD announces funding availability for supportive housing

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a notice of funding availability (NOFA) of $114 million:  $87M for Mainstream voucher renewals; $34M for project rental assistance contract renewals/amendments, and $113.99M for an estimated 899 new units of supportive housing for non-elderly people with disabilities. PLEASE NOTE:  Because these funds were appropriated in HUD’s FY 2010 budget, this NOFA does not implement the new approaches to creating Section 811 units authorized by the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act.  The reformed Section 811 program – which was signed into law by President Obama in January of 2011 – will be implemented during FY 2012.  Section 811 applications submitted in response to this NOFA are due to HUD on June 23, 2011.  More information is available at http://www.hud.gov/offices/adm/grants/nofa10/811nofa.pdf
