MTW Plans & Reports
HUD named the King County Housing Authority a Moving to Work (MTW) agency in 2003. MTW gives KCHA waivers from certain HUD regulations. This flexibility allows us to shape our federally funded programs in ways that respond to local conditions, streamline operations, and better support tenants' economic self-sufficiency. KCHA is one of 39 housing authorities that participate in the MTW program.
The Housing Authority submits plans and reports to HUD each year. The annual plan outlines our MTW goals and activities for the upcoming fiscal year. The annual report compares KCHA's performance with the goals identified in the plan.
MTW plans, reports, and amendments are provided in PDF format (download Adobe Reader).

KCHA Featured in MTW Innovation Report
In January 2015, the Public and Affordable Housing Research Company released Innovations in the Moving to Work Demonstration (PDF, 2.4 MB), a report cataloguing and analyzing approximately 300 of the most important innovations that have been tested as part of the Moving to Work (MTW) program. This report highlights KCHA as one of five housing authorities using its MTW status in innovative ways in a broad range of areas.
The report was produced in collaboration with the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA), the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), and the Public Housing Authorities Directors Association (PHADA).
