Place Cursor Here for Definition


Capital advances may be used to construct, rehabilitate or acquire structures to be used as supportive housing for persons with disabilities. Project rental assistance is used to cover the difference between the HUD-approved operating costs of the project and the tenants' contributions toward rent (30 percent of adjusted income).


Applicant Eligibility: Eligible Sponsors include nonprofit organizations with a Section 501(c)(3) tax exemption from the Internal Revenue Service. Eligible Owner entities include nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3) tax exemption from the Internal Revenue Service and for-profit limited dividend organizations with a nonprofit entity as the sole general partner.
Beneficiary Eligibility: Beneficiaries of housing developed under this program must be very low income persons with a physical disability, developmental disability or chronic mental illness (18 years of age or older).
Credentials/Documentation: The nonprofit sponsor and owner must receive certification of eligibility from HUD. The owner must submit financial statements to support its ability to provide a minimum capital investment of 1/2 of 1 percent of the capital advance amount, up to a maximum of $10,000. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-87.

Pre-application Coordination: Applicants must forward a copy of their applications to the appropriate state or local agency for a review of the supportive services plan and a completed certification from the agency as to whether the provision of services is well designed to meet the needs of the anticipated occupancy must be included in the applicant's submission of its application to the HUD field office. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-102. An environmental assessment is required for applications containing evidence of site control. This program is eligible for coverage under E.O. 12372, "Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs." An applicant should consult the office or official designated as the single point of contact in his or her State for more information on the process the State requires to be followed in applying for assistance, if the State has selected the program for review.
Application Procedure: A Notice of Funding Availability is published in the Federal Register each fiscal year announcing the availability of funds to HUD Field Offices. Applicants must submit an application, including a Request for Fund Reservation using HUD Form 92016-CA, in response to the Notice of Fund Availability (or Funding Notification issued by the local HUD Field Office.) This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-110.
Award Procedure: Applications are reviewed and selected for funding within the funding allocation of the particular HUD Field Office. Those selected for funding must meet basic program requirements including, but not limited to: eligibility as a nonprofit entity, financial commitment and prior experience in housing or related service activities.
Deadlines: Applications must be submitted within the time period specified in the Notice of Fund Availability.
Range of Approval/Disapproval Time: At the fund reservation stage, the sponsor usually is advised of the decision within 4 to 5 months from the end of the application period.
Appeals: Applicants are afforded the right to appeal HUD's determination of technical rejection.
Renewals: None.


Formula and Matching Requirements: This program has maintenance of effort (MOE) requirements; see funding agency for further details. Statistical factors used for fund allocation include a measure of the number of non-institutionalized persons age 16 or older with a work disability and a mobility or self-care limitation, and the number of non-institutionalized persons age 16 or older having a mobility or self- care limitation but having no work disability from the Census. Statistical factors used for eligibility do not apply for this program.
Length and Time Phasing of Assistance: The capital advance is not repayable if the project is available for very low income persons with disabilities for 40 years. Project Rental Assistance Contracts may not exceed 5 years. However, contracts are renewable based on availability of funds. Projects are expected to start construction within 18 months of the date of the fund reservation, with limited provision for extensions. Funds will be advanced on a monthly basis during construction for work in place.


Reports: Any change in the owner during the 40-year period of the capital advance must be approved by HUD. All owners will be required to submit an annual financial statement to HUD.
Audits: HUD reserves the right to audit the accounts of the owners in order to determine compliance and conformance with HUD regulations and standards.
Records: Regular financial reports are required. Owners must service and maintain records in accordance with acceptable mortgage practices and HUD regulations. Owners also must supply those records necessary to indicate compliance with the project rental assistance contract.

Obligations: Reported under program 14.157.
