Summary: HUD’s notice (PIH Notice 2013-2) describes a compliance effort that ensures Moving to Work (MTW) PHAs continue to meet the statutory obligation to serve substantially the same number of families as if they had not participated in the MTW demonstration. HUD has developed a numerical indicator that it will use to make annual determinations of compliance. This effort is known as the “MTW Baseline Project.”
Summary: HUD issued PIH Notice 2012-16 Request for Applications under the Moving to Work Demonstration Program for Fiscal Year 2011 on February 27, 2012. Notice 2012-16 required prospective applicants to submit applications for the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration program by June 27, 2012.
Summary: The FY 2011 appropriations law carried over from 2010 to 2011 the provision that HUD may add an additional three Moving-to-Work (MTW) agencies with the same eligibility criteria (listed below). Additionally, because the Department filled only two of the three authorized slots made available pursuant to the 2010 Act, the Department will solicit applications for one remaining MTW agency authorized in 2010, and the three agencies authorized for 2011 under this notice.
Last Tuesday, February 7, the Insurance Housing and Community Opportunity Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee marked up a discussion draft of the Affordable Housing and Self Sufficiency Improvement Act of 2012 (AHSSIA). Formerly known as SESA, a major change in this piece of legislation will be the increase in MTW authority among PHAs. NAHRO has provided a detailed summary of the hearing here.
Summary: HUD issued a notice that the Department states, "clarifies HUD policies, Federal statutes and regulations that apply to local, non-traditional activities implemented under the Moving to Work (MTW) demonstration program."
