HUD's $150 Million for Permanent Housing for the Needy

by Timothy Tiernan on March 4, 2015

HousingdollarsfortheneedyOn Monday, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that it would award $150 million in rental assistance to 25 state housing agencies to help prevent thousands of individuals with disabilities from being unnecessarily institutionalized or possibly becoming homeless. In turn, the state agencies will provide permanent affordable rental housing and needed supportive services to nearly 4,600 households with extremely low-income persons with disabilities, many of whom are hoping to transition out of institutional settings back to the community.   

HUD’s support of state housing agencies is made possible through the Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) program, which enables persons with disabilities who earn less than 30 percent of their area’s median income to live in integrated, affordable housing. State housing agencies and their state Medicaid and Health and Human Service partner agencies identify, refer, and support target populations of persons with disabilities who require community-based, long-term care services to live independently. This is one of several recent collaborative efforts between HUD and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The announcement reinforces the guiding principles of the Americans with Disabilities Act  and the landmark 1999 Supreme Court ruling in Olmstead v. L.C., helping states and local governments to provide services in the most integrated settings appropriate to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities.
