HUD Issues Notice on Relocation Requirements under RAD
HUD recently issued a notice regarding tenant relocation requirements under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. This notice provides public housing agencies and their partners with information and resources on applicable program and relocation assistance requirements when planning for or implementing resident moves as a result of a RAD conversion under the first component of the demonstration.
RAD allows public housing sites to convert assistance to long-term project-based Section 8 contracts. In many cases, a RAD project may require the relocation of residents when properties undergo repairs or are demolished and rebuilt, or when the assistance is transferred to another site.
