Policy Brief: Potential Sources of Funding for Housing Mobility Counseling Programs

Poverty & Race Research Action Council, August 2012, available here

“Many public housing agencies (PHAs) are reluctant to invest in housing mobility programs because of the perceived cost, and cite the recent reductions in Section 8 administrative fees as a further disincentive to providing “extra” services to voucher families. However, HUD program rules already require a basic minimum level of mobility services to voucher families, and additional mobility services can be funded through other HUD programs."
