How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*During in-person and phone meetings, Committee members discuss a variety of policies that are of interest to the assisted housing industry and that could be studied by new MTW PHAs.

The Committee has used written public comments, research studies, HUD program information, and verbal public comment from meeting attendees to help inform its dialogue.

Number Of Recommendations CommentThe 3 preliminary recommendations are as follows: Committee recommends the first cohort policy to study is the general effect of MTW flexibility for PHAs with fewer than 1,000 combined units. The second policy recommended to study is rent reform. Under this cohort MTW agencies, the Committee suggests three rent structures for PHAs to choose from: stepped-up rents, flat rents, or income-based tiered rents. PHAs would also be allowed to include time limits or work requirements provided they had a viable strategy for participants to access supportive services. The third policy recommended for study is landlord incentive programs. Under this cohort, MTW Agencies would agree to utilize MTW flexibilities that might increase landlord participation. Agencies could propose some combination of payment standard flexibility, financial incentives to landlords, and less frequent inspections.Access Agency WebsiteYes
