This week HUD announced that it will establish a federal advisory committee for the Moving to Work (MTW) program. The committee will advise HUD on specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation for expansion of the MTW demonstration. HUD published a request for policy proposals and evaluation methods for the expansion on April 4.

Establishment of the advisory committee is required under the 2016 appropriations bill, which authorizes HUD to expand the MTW demonstration by an additional 100 public housing authorities over seven years. According to today’s notice, the committee will have up to 14 members appointed by the HUD Secretary.

Comments on the notice are due by May 26, 2016. In other news:
