Preparing for Moving To Work (MTW)

A series of meetings and phone calls were led by Executive Director/CEO Lisa R. Porter about the Moving to Work (MTW) program. BRHA has been selected to submit a program plan to participate in MTW and must meet stringent requirements by the December 4, 2020, deadline.


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 allows PHAs exemptions from many existing public housing and voucher rules and provides funding flexibility with how they use their Federal funds. PHAs in the MTW demonstration have pioneered a number of innovative policy interventions that have been proven to be successful at the local level, and subsequently rolled out to the rest of the country’s PHAs. Currently, there are 39 MTW PHAs nationwide and HUD plans to expand the program to addition 100 PHAs by 2022.
