Moving to Work (MTW) Expansion – Cohort #2


The second cohort of the MTW Expansion will evaluate alternative rent policies designed to increase resident self-sufficiency and reduce PHA administrative burdens. It will target PHAs with 1,001 or more aggregate units of public housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) units.

PIH Notice 2019-04 requests Letters of Interest from PHAs seeking to join the second cohort of the MTW Expansion. PHAs will submit a Letter of Interest package that indicates which of four possible rent reforms the PHA is willing to test. To be considered for the second cohort, PHAs must submit a Letter of Interest package to HUD by June 12, 2019. HUD will then conduct an eligibility review of these interested PHAs.

After the final MTW Operations Notice is published, HUD will publish a separate PIH Notice seeking applications to the second cohort. Only those PHAs that submitted a Letter of Interest package under PIH Notice 2019-04 and were found to be eligible may apply.
