In October 2015, the US Department of Urban Development (HUD) awarded the Nevada Housing Division (NHD) approximately forty four (44) units in Section 811 PRA subsidies. The Purpose of Section 811 PRA is to offer project-based rental assistance for extremely low-income persons with disabilities who are 18 but less than 62 years old. HUD defines “extremely low-income” families as those whose annual incomes do not exceed thirty percent (30%) of the median income for the area in which the project is located, adjusted for family size and as determined by HUD at lease annually.
Eligible tenants must be extremely low-income (at or below 30% of Area Median Income) and at least one adult member of the household must have a disability. The person with the disability must be eligible for community-based, long-term services as provided under the state’s plan for medical assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act (Medicaid), state funded services or other appropriate services defined in the written partnership agreement
PRA subsidies are provided to project owners on behalf of families that are eligible at the time of their admission by the project owners to the program.
Nevada’s Section 811 PRA program will focus and give priority to:
- Persons with disabilities exiting institutions who are eligible under the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program; or,
- Persons with disabilities exiting institutions or at risk of going into an institution who are eligible for Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver services.
- The Section 811 PRA program will also consider individuals with disabilities who are enrolled in Medicaid, but not eligible for MFP or have not been assigned a slot in Medicaid’s 1915(c) waiver.
