Philadelphia Housing Authority
Fiscal Year 2019/2020 Moving to Work Annual Plan
Rental Assistance Demonstration Significant Amendment
The Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) is issuing an amendment to its Moving to Work (MTW) Annual Plan as required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide information on PHA’s planned activities under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. The amendment will be incorporated in its entirety into PHA’s most recent HUD-approved MTW Annual Plan – either the FY 2019 Annual MTW Plan, which has already been approved, or the FY 2020 MTW Annual Plan, which is pending HUD approval as of the date of publication of the public notice of proposed amendment. Pursuant to this amendment, PHA will convert 30 vacant, non-viable public housing units located at various scattered site locations in Philadelphia to project-based assistance at a new construction housing development to be known as Sharswood Phase I as described herein. The conversion will utilize the “transfer of assistance” provisions of RAD.
