Moving to Work (MTW) is a demonstration program for public housing authorities (PHAs) that provides them the opportunity to design and test innovative, locally-designed strategies that use Federal dollars more efficiently, help residents find employment and become self-sufficient, and increase housing choices for low-income families. MTW gives PHAs exemptions from many existing public housing and voucher rules and more flexibility with how they use their Federal funds. MTW PHAs are expected to use the opportunities presented by MTW to inform HUD about ways to better address local community needs.

The Office of Public Housing Investments (OPHI), within the Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) at HUD headquarters, oversees the MTW Demonstration.

The Links to the right provide additional information about the MTW Demonstration and participating public housing authorities.

Summary of Public Feedback on Policies to Study Under MTW Expansion

July 22, 2016

For each cohort of agencies brought on by the MTW Expansion, as authorized by the 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act, one specific policy change will be implemented. HUD published notices to solicit public comments in two issues of the Federal Register in order to gather public feedback about the policies to be studied. HUD requested comments on: 1) specific policy proposal recommendations to be implemented during the expansion; 2) research and evaluation proposal recommendations; and 3) comments on what policies should be considered as having already been proven successful.

HUD received 40 responses to the solicitation for comments over a period of 45 days. Click here for the summary of comments related to the policies to study that will inform the MTW Research Federal Advisory Committee meetings on July 26, 2016 and July 28, 2016.
