RAD Public Housing Residents


What is RAD?


RAD allows public housing agencies (PHAs) and owners of HUD-assisted properties to convert units to project-based Section 8 programs, providing an opportunity to invest billions into properties at risk of being lost from the nation's affordable housing inventory. Additionally, it gives owners of three HUD "legacy" programs (Rent Supplement, Rental Assistance Payment, and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation) the opportunity to enter into long-term contracts that facilitate the financing of improvements. This web page contains tools and resources for the public housing residents, their advocates and stakeholders. To view resources for RAD Moderate Rehabilitation, McKinney Mod Rehab Single Room Occupancy (SRO), and PRAC residents visit RAD Mod Rehab and PRAC Residents.
