Due to the lapse in Congressional Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is closed. This website is supported by a cooperative agreement funded under a prior appropriation. Current functions will remain operational but no new functions will be added during the lapse in appropriations. For more information, see HUD Contingency Plan for Possible Lapse in Appropriations.

Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program

The Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program seeks to identify, stimulate, and support successful and innovative state approaches to providing integrated supportive housing for people with disabilities. PRA funds are awarded to state housing agencies that set aside units in affordable housing projects whose capital costs are funded through Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Federal HOME funds, or other state, Federal and local funding sources. State housing agency grantees are required to partner with state Medicaid and health and human services agencies that have developed methods for the identification, outreach, and referral of extremely low-income people with disabilities to PRA units and ensure their access to long-term services and supports in the community.
