Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing, HUD.
On February 24, 2000, HUD published its Fiscal Year 2000 Super Notice of Funding Availability (SuperNOFA) for HUD's Housing, Community Development, and Empowerment Programs and Section 8 Housing Voucher Assistance. The Fiscal Year 2000 SuperNOFA included three funding availability announcements for Section 8 voucher assistance for persons with disabilities. HUD advised that any funds remaining unobligated under two of the Section 8 voucher programs would be used to fund applications for the third program. This document notifies the public that HUD now intends to use a portion of these remaining unobligated funds to provide vouchers to non-elderly persons with disabilities who are seeking to move from nursing homes and other institutional settings to housing in their local communities. Availability of voucher assistance for this purpose will be the subject of a separate Federal Register notice.
The application due dates for funding under the three programs in the Supplementary Information section of this notice have passed, and the application periods are closed. This notice does not reopen the application process for any of the three programs.Start Further Info
