The King County Housing Authority (KCHA) announces the availability of its draft 2023 Moving to Work (MTW) Plan. Moving to Work is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) demonstration program, which allows housing authorities to establish local programs and policies in order to (1) increase the housing choices of low-income families, (2) help residents achieve economic independence, and (3) increase the cost-effectiveness of federal housing programs. As an MTW participant, KCHA develops and shares an annual plan which outlines and identifies proposed changes to policies and programs that KCHA may undertake in 2023. Learn more about the 2023 MTW Plan and the September 20th public hearing.
KCHA's updated voucher payment standards take effect on Aug. 1, 2022.
