Age-Friendly Funding Alert: HUD Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program

Apr 15, 2019

In a recent announcement, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development released a $50 million funding opportunity for the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program.

The program provides Capital Advance funding for the development and operation of supportive rental housing for very-low-income persons aged 62 years or older and project rental subsidies in the form of a Project Rental Assistance Contract (“PRAC”) to maintain ongoing affordability. This program provides very-low-income elderly persons with the opportunity to live independently, but with important voluntary support services such as nutritional, transportation, continuing education, and/or health-related services.

HUD seeks to fund Section 202 properties that advance housing for the elderly as a platform for living independently and aging in community even as residents may require more assistance with activities of daily living over time.
