The Project

Preserve public housing units in need of repair. Perform outreach with residents in order to advocate for the economic development that they would like to see in their communities as the conversions from public housing occur.

The Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program has several stages and our outreach helps to educate residents on the RAD program. The project helps to facilitate working relationships between the new management and residents. If the residents have concerns during the RAD conversion, then we can assist in connecting them with resources or people to address those concerns.
