About The Event
Important Alert: Due to a medical emergency with the presenter, this webinar has been rescheduled to Nov 21 at 1 pm EDT
RAD was created as a pilot program to test out whether a conversion from public housing to Section 8 could help PHAs repair, renovate, and return needed services to residents where they otherwise couldn’t.
With market-rate rents and home sales prices continuing to rise, Public Housing plays a crucial role in maintaining affordable housing.
The need to preserve existing units is a big part of why the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program was created in 2011.
Goals of the RAD Program
- Help PHAs become more financially stable through private market financing.
- Guarantee long-term affordability and stability for existing public housing residents
- Address capital needs AND anticipated maintenance and repairs for a selected property over a 20-year period.
Key features are
- Transfer from the HUD public housing program to the Section 8 program
- Transfer to alternative ownership and management
- Funding for major capital improvements needed over the next 20 years
- Ongoing affordability - rents set at 30% of household income
- What authorizes HUD to implement RAD Program
- What exactly RAD is and what the Revision IV updates are
- Is RAD a voluntary Program
- RAD & Assisted Rental Housing
- How it changes the properties that covert
- What RAD is aimed at
Why You Should Attend
RAD was enacted by Congress in 2012 to allow public housing authorities (PHAs) to permanently convert public housing and other affordable housing properties to the project-based Section 8 housing program. The purpose of the RAD program is to repair and improve the physical quality of public housing and other affordable housing units by bringing in other funding sources beyond Congressional appropriations, such as low-income housing tax credits. Public housing properties need over $49 billion in repairs, and 10,000 public housing units are lost each year because they are in such poor condition that they become uninhabitable. While the conditions of these properties must be addressed, the RAD program goes beyond physical improvements to the property and changes the type of federal housing subsidy and rules that will apply to tenants and owners after the RAD conversion. Meaningful tenant education and participation are critical to ensure that these properties remain available to support families, seniors, persons with disabilities, and other low-income tenants who rely on federally assisted housing.
