Notice of Public Hearing and Public Comment Period

The Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) is a participant in the Moving to Work Demonstration Program (MTW). PHA was initially selected to participate in the MTW Program in 2001. In October 2008, PHA entered into an Amended and Restated Moving to Work Agreement (MTW Agreement) with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which has subsequently been further amended.

The MTW Agreement defines the terms and conditions under which PHA is a participant in the MTW Program. The MTW Agreement requires that PHA submit an MTW Annual Plan for HUD review and approval.  PHA is seeking public review and comments on the proposed FY 2016
MTW Annual Plan. The Annual Plan describes PHA's MTW proposed policy initiatives and activities for the period April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016.   PHA is also soliciting public comments on its Strategic Directions Plan which identifies strategic goals and initiatives for the five year period beginning in 2015.
