NI ReACH will be holding a Public Hearing at 10:00 am on May 19th, 2021 on Zoom to discuss our proposed Moving to Work Plan, which will be transmitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in June 2021. 

The proposed MTW plan focuses on incentivizing landlords to participate in NI ReACH’s Housing Choice Voucher program.  Through increased landlord participation, there will be more housing opportunities in more areas of the jurisdiction for Housing Choice Voucher participants.

The flexibility provided by MTW will enable NI ReACH to implement strategies tailored to our local marketplace that will be cost effective; will support and incentivize families in reaching their self-sufficiency goals or successfully aging-in-place; and will increase housing choice particularly in neighborhoods of opportunity. 

The Draft MTW Plan including Landlord Incentives Activities Information is available to read here or in NI ReACH’s communities.  Please read the Plan and let us know what you think, either by emailing Executive Director Alan Zais at azais@wchauthority.com and/or by participating in the Public Hearing on May 19th

If you would like to attend the Public Hearing, please email Mr. Zais with your request and his office will email you a Zoom invitation so that you can attend.

Thank you for your help!
