Don’t Get RAD-dled: Ensuring Compliance and Best Practices
Training Series for Public Housing Authorities on What You Need to Know about the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD)

Through RAD, public housing authorities (PHAs) are applying to convert 185,000 public housing units nationwide to project-based rental assistance (PBRA) or project-based vouchers (PBV).
