What is Section 811 Project Rental Assistance?
HUD 811 PRA is a permanent supportive housing (PSH) program offering rental assistance and supportive services for people between the ages of 18 and 61 with long-term disabilities, who may have difficulty living successfully in the community and may become homeless or institutionalized without support. Housing supports include things like reminders to pay the rent, help arranging medical appointments, and other services. Only people with disabilities who need these types of supports are eligible for HUD 811.
The Georgia HUD 811 program provides a set-aside of subsidized rental units at designated apartment buildings located around the state. Once a referral is received, a confirmation email will be sent to both the provider and the referred individual. DCA will place the referral on a county-based housing list and will refer the individual to a property that has a vacancy in the counties (or in surrounding counties) that they have requested. Position on the housing list is based on the date and time the referral was received by DCA.
