HATC has been selected to participate in the Moving-To-Work Demonstration Program by The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Moving to Work (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, help residents find employment and become self-sufficient, and increase housing choices for low-income families
MTW promotes self-sufficiency among low-income families and improves the cost-effectiveness of federal housing programs. The program also aims to expand housing choices and provide opportunities for families to move to neighborhoods with access to better jobs, schools, and other resources. Here are the three objectives of the MTW program.
The PHA Plan is a comprehensive guide to public housing agency (PHA) policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals. There are two parts to the PHA Plan: the 5-Year Plan, which outlines long term property improvement, and the Annual Plan, which is prepared yearly by the Housing Authority of Travis County and the Board of Directors.
