Moving to Work Extended for Another Decade

On March 9, 2024, President Biden signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2024, a $460 billion package of spending bills.  The “minibus” legislation included six appropriation bills, including that of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Along with a discretionary FY24 funding level of $70.069 billion for HUD, the bill included a ten-year extension of the Moving to Work Demonstration Program (MTW).  MTW agreements with HUD, including those of the FCRHA, are now extended from the year 2028 until 2038.  The bill also provided additional protections for MTW public housing authorities on the use of reserve funding.


“Moving to Work authority is a critical component in our efforts to increase access to affordable housing in the Fairfax community.  We are excited that our agreement with HUD will now be extended an additional 10 years.” said Lenore Stanton, Chair, Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority.


Through its designation as a MTW agency, the FCRHA has designed local approaches for administering housing assistance to achieve greater cost effectiveness in the use of federal dollars, help families increase their levels of self-sufficiency, and increase housing choices for low-income families.  For more information, see the FCRHA’s Moving to Work annual plans.
