A Moving To Work Agency

Moving To Work

In 2010, Tacoma Housing Authority was selected to be a Moving to Work (MTW) agency. MTW status is valuable for THA and its clients, because it allows THA flexibility in how it operates programs to better meet the needs of Tacoma's particular community. Among the advantages of MTW are that it:
  • Allows more flexibility in how we spend federal monies

  • Allows THA to give incentives to families with children where the head of household is working, seeking work or is preparing for work

  • Provides ways for THA to increase housing choices for low-income families

  • Helps us to reduce costs and achieve greater cost effectiveness in federal expenditures

Each year, THA must submit an MTW Plan to HUD for approval of any activities for which it plans to use its MTW flexibility. At the beginning of the following year, THA must also submit an MTW report detailing the results of those activities.
