What is the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program?

The MTW Demonstration Program allows high performing Public Housing Agency’s (PHAs) to design and test innovative, locally designed housing and self-sufficiency strategies for low-income families. MTW allows PHAs more flexibility in order to better serve the needs of their local community. Fresno Housing (FH) has applyied to the MTW program under Cohort #2, which will test rent reform policies and their impacts on families. FH encouraged comments and suggestions from residents as the MTW Plan was developed. If you have any questions concerning the MTW Demonstration Program, please send an email to [email protected].
