For agencies interested in learning more about HUD’s Moving to Work Demonstration Program

Considering MTW?

What is the Moving to Work Demonstration Program?

A HUD initiative, MTW enables public housing authorities to create and test innovations that are designed to help residents become self-sufficient, increase housing choices for low-income families, and boost the cost-effectiveness of the agency.

How can we help?

HAI Group has partnered with various industry groups, including the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation (PAHRC), the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA), the Public Housing Director’s Association (PHADA), the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), and the MTW Steering Committee to bring you exclusive resources and original research as you explore this exciting new opportunity.
