WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The Moving to Work (MTW) Office announced that Congress, as part of the 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act, has authorized HUD to expand the MTW demonstration program by an additional 100 high performing Public Housing Authorities (PHA) over a period of seven years. HUD seeks to solicit recommendations for specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation to be implemented as part of the expansion of the MTW demonstration. Agencies will be added to the MTW demonstration by cohort and the Act requires that for each cohort of agencies “the Secretary shall direct one specific policy change to be implemented by the agencies.”
Having an entire cohort adopt a specific policy will facilitate the evaluation of that policy.
HUD will be establishing a research advisory committee that will advise the Secretary with respect to specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation for the demonstration. HUD encourages you to submit recommendations for specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation that will help to inform HUD’s research advisory committee and future federal housing policy. Please see the Federal Register notice for more detailed information about HUD’s solicitation for recommendations, which is open to comment for 30 days from the date of publication.
Additionally, the office has created an MTW expansion webpage(link is external) on HUD.gov, which will be continuously updated throughout the year as new information is made available.
