From Miami Today:
Miami-Dade is poised for a funding infusion that could more than double the county’s existing affordable and workforce housing over the next two decades through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program.
The federal housing department last month approved a countywide portfolio application to transform public housing development here through the RAD program, which Mayor Carlos Giménez described as “nothing short of a game-changer.”
“Our mission is quality, well-maintained homes for people of limited means, and we are doing everything we can to make sure folks know that we're not wavering from that mission,” said Minneapolis Public Housing Authority (MPHA) Interim Executive Director/CEO Tracey Scott in an interview with MPR, Minnesota’s public radio station.
In “Austin Goes All in with RAD” Affordable Housing Finance’s Donna Kimura covers the Housing Authority of the City of Austin’s (HACA) progress in converting its 1,839 public housing units to project-based rental assistance through the RAD program. Now 80 percent complete after three years, HACA is on track to complete its portfolio conversion in the next year and a half.
