SAHA is one of 39 public housing authorities throughout the nation with the Moving-to-Work (MTW) designation, which provides agencies with the flexibility to design and test innovative approaches to enhance the agency’s programs.
The program’s flexibility is designed to achieve MTW’s three statutory goals:
- Increase self-sufficiency opportunities for families through job training, educational and employment programs
- Reduce expenses and achieve cost effectiveness by improving overall agency efficiency
- Increase housing choices for low-income families
