Ohio 811 PRA State Agency Partners Support 811 Mainstream Vouchers

811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) state agency partners are extending the opportunity to partner with Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and eligible non-profits in applying for 811 Mainstream Vouchers. Signed in March 2018, Title II of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 authorized $505 million in Section 811 Mainstream Vouchers, a significant increase over prior years. The 811 Mainstream Voucher Program provides tenant-based vouchers to assist non-elderly individuals with disabilities.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) posted a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) on April 18th, 2018, providing up to $100 million in vouchers to an expected 40 awardees across the nation. The NOFA, which closes on June 18th, 2018, encourages eligible applicants to partner with agencies that serve this important population. It includes up to 35 percent of total competitive points – 10 for partnerships and 15 for partner agency capacity – for collaborating. To assist in this collaborative effort, the 811 PRA Partners want to provide the opportunity to work together. Please review the support letter for more information.

To discuss more about this partnership opportunity, please contact Wes Watkins, 811 Coordinator, at wwatkins@ohiohome.org. Learn more about the 811 Mainstream Voucher Program by visiting HUD's website.
