Monarch Housing Associates was proud to partner with – Elizabeth Housing Authority, Housing Authority of Jersey City and Collaborative Support Programs of New Jersey – on their applications for Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher funding. The three received a total of 120 of the states total of 373 vouchers.
The housing assistance announced today is provided through the HUD’s Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program. The Mainstream program provides housing vouchers to housing agencies to assist non-elderly persons with disabilities who are:
transitioning out of institutional or other separated settings;
at serious risk of institutionalization;
at risk of becoming homeless.
“HUD is committed to making sure people with disabilities have a decent, safe and affordable place to call home,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “Working closely with our local partners, we help residents with disabilities live independently and fully enjoy the use of their homes.”
The 811 Program helps to further the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act by helping persons with disabilities live in the most integrated setting. The program also encourages partnerships with health and human service agencies with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate voluntary services and supports to enable individuals to live independently in the community.
