Moving to Work (MTW)

The Seattle Housing Authority is one of 39 housing authorities across the country participating in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Moving to Work program, which allows the agency to test innovative methods to improve housing services and to better meet local needs. As a participant in MTW, Seattle Housing Authority may propose and implement alternatives to federal regulations that increase efficiency and support housing choice and self sufficiency.

Each year the agency adopts a plan that describes activities planned for the following year. At the end of the year, the agency prepares a report describing its accomplishments.
