Report Acceptance Date: June 2019 (239 pages)

The report also examines how tenants and PHAs are impacted by the program. This evaluation meets Congress’s requirement to report on the early observable impacts of RAD on (1) the preservation and improvement of former public housing units; (2) the amount of private capital leveraged as a result of such conversion; and (3) the effect of conversion on residents.

This report is based on confidential data. Deidentified sample data are here. Research organizations can apply for a data license to see the full dataset.
