New HUD Grant for Housing for People with Disabilities and May 8 Webinar on Grant

Share this page

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for $100 million in new “Mainstream” housing vouchers for nonelderly people with disabilities. Applicants must be public housing authorities but there are opportunities to partner and inform your Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) on where and how to direct funds. In fact, HUD is giving extra points to PHAs that do partner with service organizations. As noted further below, there will be an informational webinar on these grants on May 8, 2018. Click here for the grant notice, and here for the application.

Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are eligible to submit applications; applications are due June 18, 2018.  While not a requirement, HUD is providing points in this competitive process for applications that include partnerships between housing and services agencies, especially those that target housing assistance to people with disabilities who are transitioning out of institutional or other segregated settings, at risk of institutionalization, homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.

To provide information about this exciting opportunity, the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Housing Task Force are sponsoring a webinar on Tuesday May 8, 2018 at 1:00 PM E.T.  The webinar will review the NOFA requirements and provide strategies to reach out to and establish partnerships with state housing agencies or the local Housing Authority(ies) in your community.
