Moving to Work
Moving to Work is a demonstration program for Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) that provides them the opportunity to design and test innovative, local strategies that use Federal dollars more efficiently, help residents find employment and become self-sufficient and increase housing choices for low-income families.
Moving to Work also allows PHAs exemptions from many existing public housing and voucher rules and provides funding flexibility with how they use their Federal funds. PHAs in the Moving to Work demonstration have pioneered a number of innovative policy interventions that have been proven successful at the local level, and subsequently rolled out to the rest of the Country's PHAs.
