MTW Research Advisory Committee Meetings Open to Public via Conference Call

HUD has scheduled meetings of the new Moving to Work (MTW) Research Advisory Committee (see Memo, 6/27) for Tuesday, July 26 and Thursday, July 28 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm ET. Both will be held via conference call and are open to the public at (800) 230-1766.

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 public must register in advance in order to provide feedback at the end of each call. Comments will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis. If the number of registered commenters exceeds the available time, HUD will ask for comments to be submitted via email. To comment, pre-register at http://bit.ly/29XiihV.

Records and documents discussed during the meeting, as well as other information about the work of the Committee, will be available to the public as they become available at http://bit.ly/29ydDj8 by clicking on the “Committee Meetings” link. These materials will also be available on the MTW Demonstration’s expansion webpage.

The two meetings will discuss potential policies that HUD may require new MTW public housing agencies to test as a condition of admittance to the program. Over the course of the two meetings, Committee members will discuss potential policy interventions regarding the three statutory objectives of MTW: increasing housing choices for low income households, providing incentives for households to become self-sufficient, and reducing costs.

Questions should be directed to Laurel Davis, at MTWAdvisoryCommittee@hud.gov, or (202) 402-5759.
