General Information

The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) became an MTW agency in November 2013. The agency presently manages approximately 5,400 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) throughout Fairfax County. FCRHA’s core MTW objectives include piloting rent and Family Self-Sufficiency Program policies to encourage self-sufficiency, achieving greater cost effectiveness in the use of federal resources by decreasing the administrative burden for staff and participants, and increasing housing choice for eligible low-income families through local payment standards. The FCRHA is also moving in the direction of using MTW flexibility to preserve and produce additional affordable housing in the County, as well as providing additional support to participants through hoarding clean up services and a local Family Self-Sufficiency Program.

MTW Status

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, which ran through its 2018 fiscal year. As a result of Congress passing the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, FCRHA’s MTW Agreement was modified and extended to the end of its Fiscal Year 2028.
