Funding Opportunity for Housing Vouchers for People with Disabilities

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a notice of funding availability for Mainstream (Section 811) Vouchers. HUD will award up to $100 million in funding to public housing agencies, with remaining funding reserved for future awards.

This opportunity provides funding to assist non-elderly people with disabilities who are:

  • Transitioning from institutional or other segregated settings to community living;
  • At serious risk of institutionalization;
  • Homeless; or
  • At risk of becoming homeless.

Applications for this funding opportunity will be reviewed for capacity and experience; leveraging resources; and achieving results and program evaluation. This opportunity is reserved for public housing agencies. Extra points will be rewarded to applying agencies that partner with health and human services agencies and community-based disability organizations.

Vouchers must be used to assist non-elderly people with disabilities (ages 18 up to 62) and their families. The eligible household member does not have to be head of the household. Eligibility is determined at the time the voucher is first issued.

This funding opportunity advances community living for people with disabilities. It also encourages partnerships with health and human service agencies and community-based organizations with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate services and supports that enable people with disabilities to live independently in the community.

Applications for this funding opportunity are due by 11:59 PM ET on June 18, 2018. View the details and application instructions.
