Moving To Work

Moving To Work is a program started in 1996 to design and test innovative, locally designed strategies using Federal dollars more efficiently. The program has three overarching goals: to help residents find employment and become self-sufficient, to increase housing choices for low-income families, and to reduce cost and greater efficiency. On March 23, 2022, AHA was designated as an MTW agency under the Landlord Incentive Cohort. Since AHA was selected under the Landlord Incentive Cohort, we are required to implement activities that improve landlord participation in the HCV Program and are prohibited from implementing activities that curb landlord participation. 

AHA’s MTW designation has several benefits including: the ability to operate more efficient programs by designing agency-specific initiatives and policies, the addition of new tools and incentives to enhance community outreach with prospective landlords to ultimately provide more housing options, the ability to invest directly into projects to create new affordable housing units, and funding flexibilities that will allow us to reallocate funds towards programs and activities with more funding needs. 

At this time MTW activities will pertain to all participants of AHA’s voucher programs except those in VASH, EHV, Mod Rehab or Shelter Plus Care. As such participants cannot choose to opt-out of changes as a result of MTW activities.
