HUD Offers $212M for Disability Housing Expansion

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is giving $212 million to help people with disabilities find affordable homes. This money goes to a program called Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities. It helps create, pay for, and offer support for rental housing that people with disabilities can use.

HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge says that everyone should have the chance to live in a home that works for them. Sadly, many homes are not set up for people with disabilities, and the ones that are can be expensive. This announcement means that $212 million is now available to create more affordable homes and services for people with disabilities.

Here’s how the money is divided:

  • $106 million goes toward building new supportive housing or fixing up existing homes. It also helps keep the rent affordable.
  • Another $106 million goes to state housing agencies to help people with disabilities pay their rent. This means they only pay what they can afford.

Ethan Handelman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Multifamily Housing Programs, says the goal is to let people with disabilities live with independence and dignity, surrounded by a community that offers the support they choose. This money is a small part of HUD’s bigger plan to meet the housing needs of all communities.
