In 2013, the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) became one of the original 39 housing authorities to be designated as a “Moving to Work” agency by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This distinction is bestowed on high-performing housing authorities to provide flexibility and local choice to create and administer housing programs that work best for their residents.
Each year, the FCRHA is required to file a Moving to Work Plan, which includes community input and outlines the activities and initiatives to be undertaken in the given year. The FCRHA uses the flexibility of the Moving to Work designation to:
- Implement strategies that can help residents increase their level of self-sufficiency
- Increase housing choices for residents
- Use federal funds more efficiently
The Draft FY 2023 Moving to Work Plan continues to further the ongoing work of the FCRHA to preserve and develop affordable housing and provide greater opportunities for individuals and families through housing mobility options and self-sufficiency tools. The draft FY 2023 Plan includes one proposed activity which requests the option to apply new payment standard increases in the Housing Choice Voucher Program at any time after they are effective.
