Section 811 Project-based Rental Assistance (PRA) Funding in the 2021 Multifamily Consolidated RFP/2022 HTC Round 1

Section 811 PRA is a program of the U.S. Department of housing and Urban Development (HUD). The purpose of Section 811 PRA is to expand the supply of supportive housing that promotes and facilitates community integration for people with significant and long-term disabilities. In partnership with Minnesota Department of Human Services, Minnesota Housing was awarded funding for approximately 160 new units of PRA.

Section 811 PRA are anticipated to be available for units for people with disabilities through the 2021 Consolidated RFP.  Applicants must submit an 811 pre-application by noon on Thursday, May 20 in the Multifamily Customer Portal to determine eligibility for the program prior to submitting a full Consolidated RFP application. Applicants will be notified about eligibility for the program prior to the application due date.

IMPORTANT: Existing developments with or without Section 811 PRA units cannot apply for Section 811 PRA funding through the 2021 Multifamily Consolidated RFP. Minnesota Housing anticipates sharing our plan for how existing developments can apply for funding this summer. Please sign up for our eNews list to be notified when this funding is announced and how to apply.
