Moving To Work

What is the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program?

MTW was created by Congress through Section 204 of the Omnibus Consolidated Rescissions and Appropriations Action of 1996. 

MTW is a demonstration program with three statutory objectives:

  • Reduce cost and achieve greater cost effectiveness in Federal expenditures
  • Promote family self-sufficiency
  • Increase housing choices

MTW agencies are afforded specific exemptions from many existing public housing and voucher rules and more flexibility with how they use their Federal funds. MTW agencies are expected to use the opportunities presented by MTW to inform HUD about ways to better address local community needs.

For more background on the MTW program, including a list of all housing authorities currently designated as MTW Demonstration sites, please visit HUD's website here.

The Housing Authority of Columbus, Georgia (HACG) submitted an application in June 2012 for the prestigious Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program. The application was prepared in collaboration with residents, participants, partners and service providers. HACG was fortunate to be selected to participate and joined the MTW Demonstration Program in July, 2013.

HACG will continue to work collaboratively with all its stakeholders, including residents, property owners, and community constituencies in the opportunity to create and study original, locally-developed housing and self-sufficiency strategies that encourage public housing or HCV families to become self-sufficient.
