As of March of 2022, 180,000 public housing units and 41,000 units of Rent Supplement, RAP and Mod Rehab had converted to a Section 8 platform through HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program which was initiated in 2012. In 2020, the 2400 202 PRACs and their 28,000 units became eligible to convert to RAD. Conversions of PRACs are picking up the pace in 2022. Congress has now approved RAD conversions for 811 PRACS and HUD is working out the details for those unique projects. Learn or refresh on what RAD is and how it changes the properties that convert. This voluntary "preservation" program is helping to stop the loss of affordable housing. It is also providing new opportunities for experienced affordable housing developers, managers, and agents from the private sector to partner with PHA's.
