Two agencies, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), together have produced the Non-elderly Disabled Category II (NED-II) voucher.  The NED-II voucher assists with a combination of rental assistance, health care and supportive services.
