HUD Funds Housing and Rental Assistance for Elderly and Disabled

HUD Funds Housing and Rental Assistance for Elderly and Disabled.  Information Bulletin # 346 (12/1)


HUD recently announced the non-profit recipients by State and City that have been awarded 2011 grants for construction, rehabilitation and rental assistance. These grants were pursuant to the Frank Melville Supportive

Housing Investment Act for disabled individuals and the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Act.


There will be 3829 units of housing for the elderly under Section 202 and 984 units for persons with disabilities under Section 811..


HUD allocated $545m in capital funds and $54m in rental assistance (vouchers to supplement rent) for these 3,829 units for the elderly. HUD allocated $137m in capital funds and $13m in rental assistance for these 984 units for persons with disabilities.


The capital funds are "federal assistance" so that Section 504 applies. Federal assistance "triggers accessibility" requirements in both the Section 202 and the 811 developments. Make sure these units are built accessible for persons with physical and sensory disabilities.


In addition to the capital funds, there are Project-based Rental Assistance Contracts. Unlike tenant-based rental assistance (vouchers which supplement the persons rental payments) where the person controls the housing voucher, Project-based vouchers are attached to the units -- not the individual.


According to the HUD release, the Project-based Rental Assistance is funding "to cover the difference between the residents' contributions toward rent and the cost of operating the project." Residents of the units must be "very low income" -- with most households having less than 30 percent of the median income.


While this is great, please remember that persons on SSI are far below the 30 percent of the median income; persons on SSI are about at 18% of the median incomes. It is important for advocates to ensure that lowest income persons with disabilities, i.e., those on SSI, will actually -- not theoretically - reside in those units. If the Project-based rental

assistance covers persons on SSI, then "affordability" will be satisfied.

If not, then advocates must take on this issue.


The HUD press release announcing these awards noted that the nonprofit grant recipients will receive federal assistance for "vulnerable" elderly and disabled persons. While it is not crystal clear, it looks like almost

all of these 202 and 811 projects will be segregated because the units will be buildings with only elderly and/or only disabled. They are not in "integrated" housing.


Obviously, elderly and disabled persons need "accessible, affordable" housing and these grants should achieve this. Advocates should contact the Grantees listed below so that persons on SSI are on the top of any waiting list for these units.
