Repositioning Public Housing

HUD has various repositioning strategies available to public housing agencies (PHAs) to provide thousands of families across the country with better-maintained units while creating opportunities to leverage public and private resources, easing administration, and preserving affordable housing. Repositioning from a public housing platform to other forms of HUD rental assistance can help PHAs address rehabilitation and physical needs, as well as place properties on a more stable financial foundation. The Department’s repositioning efforts will provide communities with additional flexibilities to better meet local needs and funding options to achieve long-term viability for their affordable housing.  Click here to explore this website.
