New TAC Supportive Housing Website

Highlights Section 811 Reforms

New TAC Supportive Housing Website

The Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) has launched a new website – the TAC Resource Center on Supportive Housing – which highlights the reforms to the Section 811 program. This site:

  • highlights the new integrated supportive housing approach recently authorized by Congress within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program; and
  • will provide information and technical assistance targeted to states and other supportive housing stakeholders as they face new challenges and opportunities to prevent and end institutionalization and homelessness among people with disabilities.

Among the resources on the site are:

HUD has indicated that it will publish a FY 2012 Section 811 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) in the fall of 2011 – 4 to 6 months ahead of the typical Section 811 NOFA publication date. This early NOFA – which may also include a Section 202 NOFA for Supportive Housing for the Elderly – is intended to draw attention to the new reforms within the Section 811 program enacted by Congress in late 2010 and funded in the FY 2012 federal budget.
