The Orlando Housing Authority (OHA) joined the MTW demonstration in January of 2011. Its goals include streamlining housing authority operations, removing or reducing rent disincentives to continued employment, improving recipient access to jobs and supportive services, providing increased low-income housing choices (including homeless/transitional housing and additional options for seniors), and taking every reasonable step to complete the greening of OHA. OHA is partnering with the University of Central Florida to complete an annual local evaluation of its MTW program. OHA currently administers approximately 1,600 public housing units and 2,900 Housing Choice Voucher units.

OHA was selected as an MTW agency through a competition held in 2009 as a part of HUD's 2009 budget appropriation (Section 236, title II, division I) and its Standard MTW Agreement was executed on January 7, 2011. OHA's MTW participation will run through its 2018 fiscal year.
