Class members of Williams, Colbert and Ligas consent decrees; participants in Money Follows the Person; and, people exiting State Operated Development Centers have been identified as priority populations.
The assistance can be applied to new or existing regulated multifamily housing funded through different IHDA sources, such as Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Federal HOME funds, and other state, Federal, and local programs.
Statewide; with emphasis placed on units in areas of high need to support the above priority populations.
IHDA was awarded two rounds of Section 811 PRA funding through competitive Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Each rental subsidy awarded will have an initial term of up to 30 years with the first five years of the contract pre-appropriated by Congress and the remaining term subject to annual appropriations. The units will be filled through the existing State Referral Network that links service providers with housing through the Statewide Housing and Employment First Coordinator in the Office of the Governor and five regional Lead Referral Agencies.
