This Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program seeks to identify, stimulate, and support sustainable state approaches that will transform the provision of housing for persons with disabilities while providing access to appropriate supports and services.
This NOFA will provide project-based
rental assistance funding to housing agencies.
These funds are available to be used as project-based rental assistance for housing units integrated within multifamily properties that are set-aside for extremely low-income persons with disabilities who are eligible for community-based long-term care services and supports provided under a State Medicaid Program or other comparable long-term services program.
Awards also allow limited use for administrative costs.
Any other use of funds is prohibited.
This Section 811 PRA program will support successful and promising state partnership models that have been developed to increase the number of permanent housing units for persons with disabilities with access to appropriate services.
This is not a voucher program.
This NOFA allows states to creatively combine or bundle Section 811 PRA funds with existing state administered affordable rental housing finance and development programs.
Housing agencies may either directly administer this project rental assistance to supported properties or in instances where there is limited experience, housing agencies are encouraged to partner/contract with other qualified parties to administer the long-term project rental assistance contracts.
A major threshold requirement of the program is that the state housing agency must have a focused partnership with the State Health and Human Service/Medicaid Agencies that will be responsible for ensuring that residents have access to the services and supports necessary to live in the community.
