HUD Funds More Mainstream Vouchers for People With Disabilities

On the 32nd anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded 218 public housing agencies (PHAs) in 46 states with more than $36 million for mainstream vouchers and administrative fees.

Mainstream vouchers are one of the most important federal programs that provide housing assistance for people with disabilities, including those transitioning to the community from institutional settings.

The new funding includes:

  1. $23 million for 2,391 new mainstream vouchers
  2. $13 million in administrative fees to help PHAs support tenants’ housing search and navigation, fund landlord engagement activities, and cover other move-in costs

Since 2018, HUD has awarded more than $500 million to support 50,000 new mainstream vouchers.
