 The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Multifamily Housing Programs announced the availability of $40 Million in funds to increase the supply of service coordinators supporting seniors and persons with disabilities living in multi-family homes. 

HUD’s Secretary Marcia L. Fudge said, “It’s crucial that HUD not only provides funds to support our seniors but the resources to ensure that these funds are implemented. Our service coordinators play such an important role in bringing supportive services so seniors and those with disabilities can live with stability.”

HUD intends to provide around 160 grant awards to pay salaries and benefits for these social service professionals via the Service Coordinator in Multifamily Housing (SCMF) Program. Service coordinators play a crucial role in connecting residents and their families with the resources such as  social connections, access to financial management assistance, and health and well-being programs so that they can thrive in their communities and age in place. 

HUD’s Assistant Secretary Julia Gordon said, “We’re excited to announce the availability of this vital funding opportunity. Linking disabled persons and seniors with supportive services promotes independence and dignity.”

The full details regarding the submission requirements and process can be found in the NOFO Published today. Also, the applications can be submitted by March 11, 2024.
