HUD Receives 42 Applications for New Integrated Housing for People with Disabilities

In May, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the availability of $85 million to state housing agencies to provide affordable, inclusive, supportive housing for extremely low-income people with disabilities. This historic announcement marked the first time that Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Program funding is being offered to state housing agencies that meet new eligibility criteria, including having a partnership with a state health and human services and Medicaid agency to provide essential supports and services. HUD estimates that this funding will provide 2,800 new supportive housing units for people with disabilities set within larger housing developments in the community. The application deadline closed August 7, with HUD receiving 42 applications from 34 states and the District of Columbia. For more information on the Section 811 program visit the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) Resource Center on Supportive Housing at http://811resourcecenter.tacinc.org.
