A Review of Work Requirement Policies in HUD-Funded Assisted Housing


Ongoing research banner

The objective of this study is to gather information about the implementation of work requirement policies in the public housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) programs funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The study will culminate in a final report that documents data gathered from four sources: 1) a literature review focusing on work requirement policies in public benefit programs, including assisted housing, 2) a series of interviews with a range of industry and advocacy groups to gather their perspectives on work requirement policies in HUD-funded assisted housing, 3) structured interviews with the nine public housing agencies (PHAs) that have implemented a work requirement policy under their Moving to Work (MTW) demonstration authority, and 4) analysis of HUD administrative data. A final report is expected early 2024.

Note: The status of this project is complete.
