A PRRAC Policy Brief (August 2020).
Excerpt: “This guidance highlights recommended practices for public housing agencies (PHAs) and project owners participating in the First Component of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) to help ensure successful implementation of the “Choice-Mobility” option. Choice mobility rights provide residents with the option to obtain a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) from their PHA after a defined period of occupancy, empowering them to move to affordable rental properties of their own selection. All tenants in RAD properties should be aware of their housing mobility rights and of their options in a range of neighborhoods (including highly-resourced areas). The Choice-Mobility provision is a central feature of the RAD program, and one with significant potential to expand a family’s residential choices and life opportunities.”
