Feds Award Millions to Individuals with Disabilities Affected by COVID for Housing

More than Three Dozen States to Receive Funds for Rental Assistance

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be awarding over $130 million through two different housing initiatives for people with disabilities. The first HUD effort provides $86.85 million through funding vouchers to public housing agencies for non-elderly individuals with disabilities who have been negatively impacted by the COVID pandemic. More than three dozen states will receive vouchers for this new initiative.  The second HUD effort focuses on developing additional rental housing for individuals with disabilities and to provide additional rental assistance. HUD is allocating $54.7 million towards organizations in 12 states and Washington, D.C. HUD’s goal is to create permanent and innovative supporting housing models that can provide security and facilitate community integration while using federal funds responsibly and efficiently.
