Moving To Work (MTW)

The Seminole County Housing Authority is proud to announce that we have the distinct honor of being named a Moving To Work agency. We are currently collaborating with HUD and other MTW agencies to develop our plans to assist our families in achieving self sufficiency. 

You may look back to this page periodically for updates regarding public meetings. 

The following has been copied from the HUD webpage regarding MTW agencies:

Moving to Work (MTW) is a demonstration program for public housing authorities (PHAs) that provides them the opportunity to design and test innovative, locally designed strategies that use Federal dollars more efficiently, help residents find employment and become self-sufficient, and increase housing choices for low-income families. MTW allows PHAs exemptions from many existing public housing and voucher rules and provides funding flexibility with how they use their Federal funds. PHAs in the MTW demonstration have pioneered a number of innovative policy interventions that have been proven to be successful at the local level, and subsequently rolled out to the rest of the country's PHAs. Currently, there are 139 MTW PHAs nationwide.
