FY 2013 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Program
Today's publication provides information and instructions for the FY 2013 Section 811 PRA program. This Notice comprises both the Notice of HUD's Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), Policy Requirements, and General Section (General Section) to HUD's FY 2013 NOFAs for Discretionary Programs, posted on www.Grants.gov on August 8, 2012, and this program section to the NOFA. This NOFA announces the availability of Section 811 PRA funding for state housing or other appropriate housing agencies to provide project-based rental assistance in the development of supportive housing for extremely low-income persons with disabilities. To be eligible for Section 811 PRA funds, these housing agencies must have a formal partnership with the State health and human service agency and the state agency designated to administer or supervise the administration of the State plan for medical assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act (Medicaid) who will be providing appropriate services and supports directly to residents. In many states, this is the same agency, so the NOFA will refer to the “State Health and Human Services/Medicaid Agency”. This Section 811 PRA program is designed to develop and support sustainable partnerships with state housing agencies and State Health and Human Services/Medicaid agencies that will result in long-term strategies to provide permanent affordable rental housing for people with disabilities receiving assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act or other individuals with disabilities receiving comparable long-term services and supports in the community.
The Technical Correction extends the deadline date, clarifies the Rental Assistance Contract (RAC) rents, clarifies Rating Factor V – Calculation of PRA funds, deletes the reference to Age Discrimination, and provides a new budget form and adds a worksheet to assist in the calculation of the Section 811 PRA request and provides a new Exhibit A and includes a new Exhibit B which was not included in the original NOFA.
