Michael Webb Publishes Report on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Moving to Work Demonstration

AAG member Michael Webb has recently published a report on the Moving to Work demonstration, a program introduced by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 1996 that allows high-performing housing authorities the flexibility to respond to local housing needs. This report offers comments meant to guide current debates about the extension of the Moving to Work agreements and providing a basis for future evaluations. Webb and Kirstin Frescoln, one of the co-authors of the report, recently met with Rep. David Price, the ranking member of the House Transportation-HUD subcommittee, to discuss their findings.

Webb and Frescoln will make a presentation on the Moving to Work demonstration at the 2015 AAG Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Webb is a research associate at the Center for Urban and Regional Studies (CURS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He serves as project manager for two evaluations of the Charlotte Housing Authority – one of its Moving Forward program and another concerning the HOPE VI redevelopment of the former Boulevard Homes.
