Public Housing Authorities, Category 2 Mainstream Vouchers, and Future Vouchers





  Public Housing Authorities, Category 2 Mainstream Vouchers, and Future  Vouchers. Information Bullettn #341 (9/2011)

Last year, HUD issued two categories of Mainstream Vouchers for non-elderly persons with disabilities.  As many of you know, there were only 1,000 vouchers in Category 2, which was targeted to provide rental assistance to assist persons transitioning out of institutions.  HUD awarded these vouchers randomly and therefore many Public Housing Authorities which applied did not receive any Category 2 vouchers.

Many disability advocates worked with their Public Housing Authorities to encourage them to apply and even to assist in writing the application. 

HUD is in the process of developing guidelines for the awarding of new vouchers issued pursuant to the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act of 2010.  There will be both tenant-based vouchers and project-based vouchers. 

Advocates will yet again have both to urge their PHA to apply and to help them.

Listed below by State are all of the 143 PHAs which applied for the Category 2 Mainstream Vouchers.  These PHAs (and you, their advocates) should be encouraged once again to be ready to apply for the new vouchers. 

In a separate Information Bulletin we will provide the list of PHAs which applied for Category 1 Mainstream Vouchers, which were targeted to any non-elderly person with a disability without regard to institutionalization.

If either no PHA in your State applied OR if your specific PHA did not apply for a category 2 voucher, you should begin NOW to contact them.

If sugar and honey do not work, and obviously those are the sweetest way to proceed, look at the previous Information Bulletin #340 (HUD Points Out Olmstead Enforcement Options) for the hammer approach!  Yes, if necessary, the gloves will come off.
