Contracts for services to USA nonprofit organizations to develop permanent supportive rental housing for low-income people with disabilities. Funding is intended to offer individuals with disabilities (age 18 years or older) the opportunity to live independently and with dignity within the community in an integrated environment that provides access to appropriate and voluntary supportive services. The program also provides project rental subsidies to maintain ongoing affordability over the next 40 years. Proposals must promote the long-term housing security and facilitate community integration of persons with disabilities. For program definitions, see:

Capital advance funds must be used to finance the development of housing through new construction, rehabilitation, or acquisition with or without rehabilitation. The types of housing that can be developed with Section 811 capital advance funds include dwelling units in integrated housing setting, condominium housing, and small group homes. Capital advance funds may be used in combination with other non-Section 811 funding sources leveraged by a single-purpose and single-asset for-profit limited partnership to develop a mixed-finance project, which may or may not include additional unassisted housing units for persons with disabilities over and above the Section 811 units.

Project Rental Assistance Contract (PRAC) funds are provided to cover the difference between the HUD-approved operating costs and the amount the residents pay. Units must be integrated within a larger multifamily housing property where no more than 25 percent of the total units being developed, rehabilitated, or acquired are used for persons with disabilities, including supportive housing for persons with disabilities or units to which any occupancy preference for persons with disabilities applies. For additional information about project and housing types, see:

Applicants must demonstrate control of the site for which they are applying for Capital Advance funds. For additional information about site control and zoning, see:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants are Sponsors or Co-Sponsors that are nonprofit organizations with a section 501(c)(3) tax exemption from the Internal Revenue Service, other than institutions of higher education.

Sponsors/Owners are encouraged to establish formal partnerships with health and human service agencies or other organizations with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate voluntary services and supports to enable individuals to live independently in the community. These partner organizations should assist the Owners by providing referrals of potential tenants, assisting with a timely transition to a unit, and providing the opportunity to access supportive services and supports. In addition to receiving referrals from partner organizations, the Owners must allow non-elderly persons with disabilities to apply for housing directly without going through a partner agency. There is no limit to the number of agencies an Owner may partner with for referrals and supportive services.

In addition to local service providers, HUD encourages applicants to partner with one or more of the following State service agencies that offer supports:
- State Medicaid Agency
- State Developmental Disability Services Agency
- State Mental Health Authority
- Centers for Independent Living

Such partnerships cannot result in eligibility requirements which may violate nondiscrimination requirements under any applicable Federal civil rights statutes and requirements, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section 504), titles II or III of the Americans with Disabilities (ADA), and the Fair Housing Act and their implementing regulations at 24 CFR part 8; 28 CFR parts 35 and 36; 24 CFR part 100.

Applicants are highly encouraged to leverage other sources of funds to support the development of the Section 811 units. No cost sharing or match is required; however, applicants are required to make a commitment to cover the estimated start-up expenses, the minimum capital investment of one half of one percent of the HUD-approved capital advance, not to exceed $10,000, and any funds required in excess of the capital advance, including the estimated cost of any amenities or features (and operating costs related thereto) which are not covered by the capital advance.
