MTW Agencies

There are currently 80 housing authorities with MTW status.

39 original MTW agencies have agency-specific MTW agreements with HUD, detailing the flexibilities granted in order to meet program goals, and each have had their agreements extended through the end of 2028. Each year, the housing authority completes an annual plan, to be approved by HUD, and an annual report on the outcomes achieved. Congress authorized the expansion of the MTW program to 100 additional agencies in the 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

In January 2021, HUD announced the 31 agencies that have been selected for Cohort 1 of the MTW Expansion. This cohort is comprised of PHAs with 1,000 or fewer aggregate units of public housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) units. 

In May 2021, HUD announced the 10 public housing agencies (PHAs) that were selected for Cohort 2 of the MTW Expansion.  This cohort will evaluate stepped and tiered rent policies. 

HUD has indicated that the future third and fourth cohorts of the MTW Expansion will evaluate work requirements and landlord incentives.
