Program Activites Application

In a collaborative partnership, the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA), Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), Department of Developmental Services (DDS), and California Tax Credit Allocation Committee (TCAC) have developed California's Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Demonstration Program.  This demonstration program provides the State, in coordination with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and local stakeholders, the opportunity to proactively implement system changes for Medicaid beneficiaries with disabilities, ages 18 to 61, who have resided in a long-term health care facility for at least 90 days and would like to return to community living, or are at risk of institutionalization pursuant to the terms of the applicable Notice of Funding availability. 

Project sponsors will apply for long-term project-based rental assistance funding.  Each project requesting rental assistance funds will have already received development financing from one of the State's housing agencies.  A Rental Assistance Contract will be executed for the project-based subsidy and the State will administer the subsidy.  Through the program, it is estimated that 563 units will be reserved for extremely low-income people with disabilities.  Project rental assistance tenants will have access to a full continuum of Medi-Cal funded services.

For further information, check the full Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Program, at the CalHFA site.

  • Addition of an example project (see Appendix A)
  • Clarification of default parking rates for calculating PDT-1 in CalEEMod (Appendix B)
