The Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) allows public housing authorities to tap outside sources of capital by converting public housing properties into project-based rental assistance contracts. The RAD program is an opportunity to address the public housing stocks severe backlog of repairs and other capital needs. Through the RAD program, EHA converts its public housing operating subsidy into long-term project based rental assistance. With that contract in hand, EHA can more readily assemble a mix of private and public sources, including tax exempt bonds and 4% tax credits, to address the immediate and long-term capital needs of the housing units.
