RAD Extended and Expanded

An extension of HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) was included in the spending bill passed by Congress last week.  The RAD program allows Public Housing and Moderate Rehabilitation (Mod Rehab) properties to convert to long-term Section 8 rental assistance contracts. The bill expanded the number of units allowed to use the program from 60,000 to 185,000, and also made SRO Mod Rehab buildings eligible for the program.  To learn more about RAD, visit hud.gov.
