Even if your agency is not participating in the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program, you may be interested in the inaugural issue of the monthly “RAD Newsletter” launched today. The two-page issue includes recent RAD news, highlights key program statistics, and lists recently closed projects. You’ll find a link to the newsletter on the RAD news page.
In other RAD news, last week HUD posted a “case studies” document spotlighting four agencies participating in the demonstration program. The eight-page document focuses on the differing issues faced by the participating housing authorities, including:
- Combining RAD and Moving to Work (Cambridge, MA)
- A small PHA leveraging private financing (Ilion, NY)
- Financing substantial rehabilitation (Lexington, NC)
- Effective resident engagement (Broward County, FL)
