The Moving to Work (MTW) Research Advisory Committee will meet via conference call on Tuesday, December 13 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm ET. The public is invited to listen in. The goal of the meeting is to continue discussions and make recommendations about whether to study mobility and/or place-based models through a cohort of the 100-agency MTW expansion. Specifically, the committee will discuss the policy framework and research methodology related to increasing housing choice, including strategies to encourage participant mobility and place-based based strategies as a platform for health and educational outcomes.

The Committee was established on May 2, 2016 to advise HUD on specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation related to the expansion of the MTW demonstration to an additional 100 high-performing public housing agencies. On July 26 and 28, HUD convened two conference call meetings of the Committee, followed by a two-day in-person meeting on September 1 and 2 (see Memo, 5/9, 6/27, 7/18, and 8/22). The minutes of these meetings are available on the MTW Expansion website at: http://bit.ly/1WfCQn2
