Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Program

In April 2015, the US Department of Urban Development (HUD) awarded the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (HMFA) two-hundred and six (206) Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (Sect. 811 PRA) subsidies to provide rental assistance for extremely low income persons with disabilities and extremely low income households with at least one person with a disability. The initial term of the Sect. 811 PRA is five (5) years and with yearly subsequent renewals subject to appropriations. The Sect. 811 PRA program was authorized under the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act of 2010.

The HMFA has designed the Sect. 811 PRA program to assist the State of New Jersey in fulfilling their Olmstead settlement obligations. HMFA, in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) will select individuals leaving developmental centers and state psychiatric hospitals, as well as those who are at risk of institutionalization as the targeted populations.
