The Housing Authority of the City of Reno (RHA) became an MTW agency in June of 2013. The agency presently manages 764 public housing units and 2,728 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) throughout the Reno community. RHA’s core MTW objectives include providing new housing choice and self-sufficiency opportunities for Public Housing residents, acquiring 50 single-family homes, duplexes or condominiums in low-poverty areas and project basing vouchers in these units to promote poverty deconcentration and strengthen neighborhoods, increasing housing mobility, reducing costs and achieving greater costs effectiveness, completing xeriscaping at its public housing sites, and conducting a rigorous rent reform evaluation.

RHA 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 June 27, 2013. RHA’s MTW participation will run through its 2018 fiscal year.
