The Rockford Housing Authority is inviting you to participate in a Resident Meeting in person or online through ZOOM. The Resident Meeting will be on Monday, June 28, 2021, from 10:00 AM -11:00 AM & July 1, 2021, from 2:00 PM – 3 PM. Residents can participate through ZOOM by accessing the meeting based on the instructions provided below; or Residents can attend in person at Rockford Housing Authority, 223 South Winnebago Street, Rockford, IL 61102.
The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the Housing Authority’s plans to apply to HUD for MTW (Moving to Work) status. MTW is a demonstration program for Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) that provides them the opportunity to design and test innovative, locally-designed strategies that:
- Use Federal dollars more efficiently.
- Increase the number of landlords participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
- Provide more housing options for low-income families.
Currently, there are 80 MTW PHAs nationwide and HUD plans to expand the program to 139 PHAs by 2022. The specific versions of MTW status that the Housing Authority is considering applying for is defined by HUD as MTW Cohort #4 – Landlord Incentives.
More information on MTW Cohort #4 can be found on this website: https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/public_indian_housing/programs/ph/mtw/expansion/cohort4
