4th Wave of Funding to Assist People Living with Disabilities

On Monday, HUD Secretary Carson announced that the 4th wave of CARES Act funding would be supporting up to 8300 housing choice vouchers to public housing authorities. These funds will be provided through HUD’s Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program. It will provide affordable housing to non-elderly people living with disabilities. See the local impact of the housing assistance announced today.

“Since the inception of the Mainstream Voucher program in 2017, HUD has allocated more than $500 million for this program… These new funds, which were approved by the President in the CARES Act, will be important to help those most at risk stay at home during the COVID-19 situation.” – Hunter Kurtz, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

The program empowers the Americans with Disabilities Act by helping persons with disabilities live in community-based settings. The program also encourages partnerships with health and human service agencies with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate voluntary services. And it supports to enable individuals to live independently in the community.
