Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD): Tales from the Front Lines of RAD Implementation

In 2013, HUD established the Rental Assistance Demonstration program (RAD) to provide public housing authorities and private owners of at-risk properties with the opportunity to preserve and address the capital needs of this affordable housing stock.

The RAD program provides public housing authorities and private owners with the ability to access long term project-based Section 8 contracts to leverage private debt and Low Income Housing Tax Credits equity sources to recapitalize these housing assets for long term financial and physical sustainability.

This webinar featured a discussion on the RAD program with lessons learned from successful RAD transactions.
