The Seattle Housing Authority is one of a select group of high-performing public housing authorities (PHAs) 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. SHA became an MTW agency in 1999 as one of the 39 Initial MTW PHAs. 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. More information about SHA's participation in the MTW program since 1999 can be found on SHA's page on HUD's website.

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.
