Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for 811 Programs

HUD has set a February 10th, 2020 deadline for eligible non-profit organizations to apply for a total of $75 million in capital advance funds under its Section 811 Supportive Housing for Very Low-Income Persons with Disabilities program.  The Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Program aims to expand the supply of integrated affordable housing by providing Capital Advance funding for the development of permanent supportive rental housing for very-low-income persons age 18 years or older. 

HUD seeks to fund innovative Section 811 permanent supportive housing models that will be at the forefront of design, service delivery and efficient use of federal resources. HUD expects successful Sponsors to demonstrate best practices or innovation in both physical design and supportive services. 

In addition to support for construction, Capital Advance Awards provide operating subsidies in the form of a Project Rental Assistance Contracts (“PRAC”) to maintain ongoing affordability over the next forty years. These much-needed units provide persons with disabilities the opportunity to live as independently as possible within the community in an integrated environment that provides access to appropriate and voluntary supportive services. 

This is the first time in almost a decade that HUD has been able to fund new Section 811 housing projects. 

Up to 30 awards are anticipated with a maximum of $2.5 million each. 

HUD will conduct a December 4th Webinar on the Section 811 Project Rental Assistance component & on December 12th a Webinar about the capital advance funding opportunity.
