HUD Announces Next MTW Research Advisory Committee Meetings

The next two-day meeting of the Moving to Work (MTW) Research Advisory Committee (see Memo, 7/18) will take place on Thursday, September 1 from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm ET and Friday September 2, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at HUD Headquarters. The meeting is open to the public either in person or by phone by advance registration on the MTW Demonstration program’s expansion web webpage,

The public may offer feedback during the meeting if requested in advance. The initial meetings of the Advisory Committee were held on July 26 and 28 (see Memo, 6/27). Minutes of those meetings are not yet available, but will be posted eventually on the MTW Demonstration expansion webpage.

The MTW Research Advisory Committee was established on April 16, 2016 to advise HUD on specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation related to expansion of the MTW demonstration to an additional 100 high-performing public housing agencies (see Memo, 5/9).

The upcoming meetings are scheduled to discuss: simplification of rent calculations; studying MTW public housing agencies’ ability to use public housing capital and operating funds for vouchers, and visa versa (called “fungability”); regionalization; work requirements, time limits, and supportive services with and without rent reform; local project-based voucher programs; sponsor-based voucher programs; and landlord incentive programs.
