HCD Director Paula Sampson meets with HUD Secretary Castro
Urges HUD to lift RAD “Cap” during FY 2015 funding cycle

On Thursday, November 6, Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) Director Paula Sampson, and other members of the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) and the “Lift the RAD Cap Coalition” met with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián Castro. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the need to lift the 60,000 unit cap on the number of Public Housing units that can be converted to the Section 8 subsidy under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program. The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) has applied to HUD to convert its 1,060 unit Public Housing portfolio under RAD. However, the FCRHA’s units cannot be converted until the RAD “cap” is lifted.

FCRHA Applies for Additional VASH Vouchers to Help Veterans

At the invitation of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) has submitted an application to HUD for an additional 17 Veterans Affairs Supported Housing (VASH) vouchers. 

The VASH Program serves homeless veterans and their families who are referred by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for housing to the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and the Office to Prevent and End Homelessness (OPEH). 

It is anticipated that the VASH vouchers will be awarded in January 2015.  If awarded, these additional vouchers will increase the number of VASH vouchers administered by the FCRHA from 63 to a total of 80.
