HUD 811 Information and Upcoming Webinar
Tuesday, May 8, 10:00 AM PDT
To learn more about this opportunity, you may participate in the New Housing Vouchers for People with Disabilities webinar on Tuesday May 8 at 10:00 AM PT. Sponsored by the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Housing Task Force the webinar will provide strategies for partnering with state housing agencies and/or local housing authorities in addition to reviewing the NOFA requirements. The webinar is free of charge but you must register here to attend. I hope this information is useful.
For regional centers interested in vouchers set-aside for consumers, here is a brief summary of the HUD 811 voucher NOFA posted 4/18/18:
- HUD has $100 million available through this NOFA for Mainstream housing choice vouchers for very low income, non-elderly (18-61 years old at time of voucher issuance) disabled persons who are coming out of institutions, at risk of institutionalization, homeless, or at risk of homelessness.
- Public housing agencies (PHA) apply for awards from this NOFA and administer the vouchers locally. The rating criteria is weighted according to capacity/experience of the PHA (60 points), leveraging resources (30 points) and achieving results/evaluation (10 points). HUD expects to grant approximately 40 awards, with a minimum award amount of $75K and max award amount of $5 million.
- The amount of subsidy for each household is determined by the PHA, and is equal to the difference between 30% of household income and a “moderately priced dwelling unit in the local housing market”. Eligibility for a voucher is limited to households with incomes of 50% or less AMI. In addition, by law, 75% of vouchers must go to households at 30% AMI or lower. The NOFA was posted 4/18/18 and the application deadline is 6/18/18.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a notice of funding availability for Mainstream Vouchers to assist non-elderly people with disabilities. HUD will award up to $100 million in funding to public housing agencies. California providers of supportive living services who partner with their local public housing agency are perfect candidates for this grant. Applications for this opportunity are due by 8:59 PM PT on June 18, 2018.
