The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced $749 million in housing assistance grants under HUD’s Section 202 (for the elderly) and Section 811 (for persons with disabilities) programs. Section 811 Capital Advances will provide $137 million to assist very low-income persons with disabilities through 92 projects in 34 states. An additional $12.6 million will be available for project rental assistance contracts. Most of the housing supported through the Section 811 Program will be newly constructed, typically small apartment buildings, group homes for three to four persons, or condominium units that are integrated into the larger community. Residents will pay 30 percent of their adjusted income for rent and the federal government will pay the rest.
