Lexington's HCV Mainstream Program Awarded $441,955  

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded $131.3 million to 325 local public housing authorities across the country to provide affordable housing to approximately 15,363 additional non-elderly persons with disabilities. Secretary Ben Carson made the national announcement during a visit to Detroit, Michigan. The Detroit Housing Commission received $597,629 to serve the residents in their community living with disabilities. See the local impact of the housing assistance announced today.

“At HUD we’re committed to ensuring people with disabilities have a decent, safe, and affordable place to live,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “The funding announced today allows our local partners to continue helping residents with disabilities live independently.”

The housing assistance announced today is provided through the HUD’s Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program which provides funding to housing agencies to assist non-elderly persons with disabilities, particularly those who are transitioning out of institutional or other separated settings; at serious risk of institutionalization; currently experiencing homelessness; previously experienced homelessness and currently a client in a permanent supportive housing or rapid rehousing project; or at risk of becoming homeless.

This program helps to further the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act by helping persons with disabilities live in the most integrated setting. The program also encourages partnerships with health and human service agencies with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate voluntary services and supports to enable individuals to live independently in the community.
