Guidance on Successful Implementation of the Choice-Mobility Option

The Poverty & Race Research Action Council has published a Guide for Successful Implementation of Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Choice-Mobility. This new publication highlights recommended practices for public housing agencies (PHAs) and project owners of converted public housing properties on the effective implementation of the “Choice-Mobility” option. Choice mobility rights provide residents with the option to obtain a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) from their PHA after a defined period of occupancy, empowering them to move to affordable rental properties of their own selection. The Choice-Mobility provision is a central feature of the RAD program, and one with significant potential to expand a family’s residential choices and life opportunities.
