The Frank Melville Supportive Housing Act of 2010 (P.L. 111–374) authorized the Section 811 PRA Program.
HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing Programs published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for FY 2013/2014 for the Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program in March 2014 which made available approximately $120 million in funding to state housing agencies or other appropriate housing agencies that have formed partnerships 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 requiring long-term services and supports. These operating funds will be used to provide project-based rental assistance for units set aside for this target population in affordable housing projects whose capital costs are funded through Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, HOME funds, or other sources.
