Moving to Work (MTW) Expansion – Stepped and Tiered Rent Cohort

Overview

In May 2021, HUD announced the 10 public housing agencies (PHAs) that have been selected for the Stepped and Tiered Rent Cohort of the MTW Expansion. A brief description of each PHA can be found in the “Applicant/Selectee Information” section below. More information on each of these PHAs will be posted on the Participating Agencies page as they begin the process of accepting MTW designation and implementing a local MTW program.

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

PIH Notice 2019-04 requested Letters of Interest from PHAs seeking to join the Stepped and Tiered Rent Cohort of the MTW Expansion. To be considered for this cohort, PHAs submitted a Letter of Interest package by June 12, 2019. HUD conducted an eligibility review of these interested PHAs.

PIH Notice 2020-21 requested full applications from PHAs seeking to join the Stepped and Tiered Rent Cohort of the MTW Expansion. Only those PHAs that submitted a Letter of Interest package under PIH Notice 2019-04 and were found to be eligible could apply under PIH Notice 2020-21. A list of these PHAs is also provided below in the “Applicant/Selectee Information” section.
