The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) became an MTW agency in November of 2013. The agency presently manages approximately 1,100 public housing units and 3,910 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) throughout the Fairfax County community. FCRHA’s core MTW objectives include piloting rent policies that will encourage self-sufficiency and assure accurate reporting of income, leveraging local and federal resources to serve the same or larger number of families while preserving, transforming, and revitalizing Public Housing, achieving greater cost effectiveness in the use of federal resources, increasing housing choice for eligible low-income families, changing or eliminating existing local preferences to better align resources with community needs, and giving incentives for families with children where the head of household is working, seeking work or is preparing for work by participating in job training, educational programs, or programs that assist people to obtain employment and become economically self- sufficient.

FCRHA was selected as an MTW agency through a competition held in 2012 as part of HUD’s 2011 budget appropriation (Public Law 112-10, 125 Stat. 103) and its Standard MTW Agreement was executed on November 7, 2013. FCRHA’s MTW participation will run through its 2018 fiscal year.
