Moving To Work (MTW)

Overview

The Boston Housing Authority (BHA) is notifying its Public Housing residents and participants in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program of our intent to participate in the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program. BHA will submit an MTW Plan and Application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under COHORT #4 – Landlord Incentives to increase the number of landlords that participate in the HCV program, and also to allow us greater flexibility to support resident self-sufficiency, increase housing choice for our residents and participants, and to streamline and simplify our programs.  Click here to see the draft BHA application for the Moving to Work Demonstration Program.

BHA staff invited residents and the public to attend one of our virtual meetings to learn more about the MTW program, and to tell us about some ideas for the program.  We offered resident/participant sessions on September 1st at 11am and at 6pm on zoom, and to attend the meeting that worked best for them. Following the Application Discussion Meetings, the BHA released its draft MTW Application September 10th for a 30-day public review and comment period ending October 10th.  The MTW Application is available in the Planning Dept. 11th floor, 52 Chauncy Street and on the BHA website at www.bostonhousing.org/mtw.  The BHA also invited residents and the public to attend one of our virtual public hearings on September 22nd at 11am and at 6pm on zoom to provide comments on the draft Application.  There were two sessions, and people were welcome to attend the hearing that worked best for them.
