Special Funding Alert - 9,800 Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers for People with Disabilities Available
On March 26, 2002, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a Super Notice Of Funding Availability (Super NOFA), which includes most of the new permanent housing funding opportunities in HUD’s fiscal year 2002 budget. This year, funds are available to support over 9,800 new Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers for people with disabilities.
This special issue of Opening Doors focuses primarily on a very important Section 8 funding opportunity – the 3,950 Section 8 vouchers for people with disabilities that Congress created for Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) designating elderly/disabled buildings as “elderly only.” Unfortunately, despite the clear intent of Congress to assist people with disabilities, some PHAs eligible to receive these vouchers have neglected to apply for them.
