$400,181 IS BEING USED TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN NC
Today, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the award of $400,181 to four local public housing authorities (PHAs) in North Carolina to provide permanent affordable housing to non-elderly persons with disabilities.
This award allows these PHAs to house up to 60 additional families, and further support community integration for persons with disabilities with the state of North Carolina. This is provided through the HUD's Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program, which offers funding to housing agencies to assist non-elderly persons with disabilities who are transitioning out of institutional or other isolated settings, at serious risk of institutionalization, homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless. Mainstream partners, including Centers for Independent Living, state protection and advocacy agencies, Medicaid agencies, and Continuums of Care, collaborate with the PHAs to assist with the application and housing search process.
