Rental Assistance for Non-Elderly Persons with Disabilities

In Support of Designated Housing Plans

 

 

This program provides housing choice vouchers to assist non-elderly disabled families who would have been housed by a PHA if occupancy in the designated public housing project/building (or portion thereof) were not restricted to elderly households, and assist PHAs that wish to continue to designate their projects/buildings (or portions thereof) as “mixed elderly and disabled buildings” and can demonstrate a need for alternative housing resources for non-elderly disabled families that is consistent with the jurisdiction’s Consolidated Plan and the low-income housing needs of the jurisdiction. 

Only non-elderly disabled families that are income eligible under 24 CFR 982.201(b)(1) and who live in public housing that has been designated for occupancy by the elderly, or non-elderly disabled families who are on the PHA's public housing waiting list, may receive a voucher awarded in conjunction with an approved designated housing plan.  Such families need not be listed on the PHA's housing choice voucher waiting list in order to be offered and receive a housing choice voucher.  These families may be admitted to the housing choice voucher program as a special admission (24 CFR 982.203).  A non-elderly disabled family is a family who is not elderly, and whose head, spouse, or sole member is a person with disabilities.  It may include two or more persons with disabilities living together, or one or more persons with disabilities living with one or more live-in aides.
