HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program, created in 2012, is having an impact
on public housing and HUD’s Rent Supplement, RAP and Mod Rehab projects. This voluntary
“preservation” program is helping to stop the loss of affordable housing. It is also providing new
opportunities for experienced affordable housing developers, managers and agents from the private
sector to partner with PHA’s. As of January 2018, HUD had closed RAD transactions on more than
800 public housing properties as well as 200 Rent Supplement and RAP projects and a significant
number of Mod Rehab homes. Learn what RAD is, how it changes the properties that convert, and
how your skills may be needed in this ambitious effort to leverage private capital to preserve assets and
offer residents greater choice and mobility.
