The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Multifamily Housing has announced $212 million in funding to expand the supply of affordable housing and supportive services for individuals with disabilities. This funding is allocated to the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program, which aims to create, subsidize, and provide supportive services for rental housing that meets the needs of very-low and extremely-low–income Americans with disabilities, HUD reports. 

The initiative offers $106 million in capital advances for developing or rehabilitating supportive housing and project rental subsidies to maintain affordability, and another $106 million goes to state housing agencies for project rental assistance.

“Every American should have the ability to live in affordable housing that caters to their needs. Unfortunately, today, far too many housing options are inaccessible to those with disabilities – and those with the appropriate accommodations are often too expensive,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “This announcement delivers serious progress, making $212 million available to expand housing supply and supportive services for low-income folks with disabilities.”
