Securing New Housing Opportunities through the Federal Section 811 Program

The Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) supportive housing program that assists the lowest income people with significant and long-term disabilities to live independently by providing affordable housing linked with voluntary services and supports.  In December 2010, Congress passed bi-partisan legislation - the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act (Melville Act) - which includes important Section 811 reforms to stimulate the creation of thousands of new integrated permanent supportive housing units every year. HUD recently released the Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Demonstration Notice of Funding Availability.  On June 14th USICH and the Technical Assistance Collaborative, Inc. presented a webinar about this important new funding source.
