Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities

The Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) program allows individuals living with a disability to live independently in their community by supporting new or existing multifamily properties with the availability of supportive services for individuals and families who meet program requirements. Montana Housing at the Montana Department of Commerce has partnered with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services to provide supportive services.

Multifamily Properties

Multifamily properties receive project based rental assistance funding for apartments integrated in their properties that are set aside for extremely low-income persons with disabilities who are eligible for community-based long-term care services and support provided under a State Medicaid Program.

Benefits for property owners:

  • Owners can allocate a maximum of 25% of units in a property, or a minimum of 1 unit
  • Montana Housing will pay up to $2,500 for move-out damages
  • Units are HUD subsidized and Housing Assistance Payments are made on the first business day of each month

If your property would be interested in participating in this program to help connect more Montanans with affordable, supportive homes please complete the pre-application.

Families must be extremely low-income and include at least one family member with a disability, who is between the ages of 18 and 62-years old at the time of admission into the property. The person with the disability must be eligible for community-based, long-term services as provided through Medicaid waivers, Medicaid state plan options, state funded services or other appropriate services related to the type of disability. Services for the 811 PRA program are voluntary.
