Section 811 PRA Program


The Section 811 Project-Based Rental Assistance (PRA) Program provides project-based rental assistance for extremely-low income persons with disabilities who are between the ages of 18 and 61. The goal of this program is to expand the number of supportive housing units available in order to promote the integration of low-income people with disabilities into the community who might otherwise be institutionalized or become homeless. Missouri Housing Development Commission is partnering with the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) and the Missouri Department of Social Services (DSS) to administer Missouri’s 811 PRA program.

Section 811 PRA Program funds will be used to provide project-based rental assistance to eligible persons referred by the Missouri Department of Social Services and the Missouri Department of Mental Health. Eligible applicants include extremely low-income households comprised of one or more adults between the ages of 18-61 with a disability and who are Medicaid recipients. Eligible properties for the Section 811 PRA program may be new construction, rehabilitation, or existing multifamily properties and owned by a nonprofit, public or a private entity.

MHDC was awarded a grant through HUD’s Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Program to administer the Section 811 PRA program in the state of Missouri for five years. 

MHDC released a Notice of Funding Availability on September 16th, 2022. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until 1-year from the NOFA release date, or until all funds have been committed, whichever comes first.
