Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities
Through the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program, HUD provides funding to subsidize rental housing with the availability of supportive services for very low- and extremely low-income adults with disabilities.
The Section 811 program allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services.
The newly reformed Section 811 program is authorized to operate by providing project rental assistance to state housing agencies. The assistance to the state housing agencies can be applied to new or existing multifamily housing complexes funded through different sources, such as Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Federal HOME funds, and other state, Federal, and local programs.
Tenant Eligibility: To qualify, at the time of admission at least one person in a household considered for a unit receiving 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) rental subsidies must be non-elderly (18-61 years of age), disabled, and receiving or be eligible to receive Medicaid and services and supports provided through DPHHS. To be eligible, an individual’s income level must be at or below 30% Area Median Income (AMI) and they must be eligible for HCBS waiver services.
For more information about receiving this type of rental assistance, contact your HCBS waiver case worker at DPHHS.
