Service Coordinator Program History

- -
 Information by State
 Print version
Congress created HUD's Service Coordinator program through the National Affordable Housing Act, Section 808 (Public Law 101-625). This law gave HUD the authority to use Section 8 funds to employ Service Coordinators in Section 202 housing.

The Service Coordinator program received additional authority through the 1992 Housing and Community Development Act (HCDA) (Public Law 102-550). The HCDA expanded the program by broadening authority for funding of Service Coordinators in most HUD assisted and conventional public housing developments designated for the elderly and people with disabilities. The law described key functions of a Service Coordinator's job and gave examples of types of supportive services needed by residents. The HCDA also stipulated mandatory training requirements.

Section 851 of the American Homeownership and Economic Opportunity Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-569) amended the HCDA. The primary modification to the program now allows Service Coordinators to assist "low-income elderly or disabled families living in the vicinity…" of a HUD assisted housing site.
