About RAD

Housing Opportunity Management Enterprises (HOME) is participating in a new program offered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) called the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD).  RAD seeks to preserve public housing by providing public housing agencies (PHAs) with access to more stable funding to make needed improvements to properties.
RAD is a central part of HUD's strategy to preserve the nation’s rapidly aging and deteriorating stock of deeply affordable rental housing.

  • HUD gives ownership of city’s public housing to HOME.
  • Allows HOME to use proven financing to rehab and replace housing to meet citizen-driven demand.
  • Allows HOME to utilize LIHTC (low-income housing tax credits) to secure access to public housing.
  • Aligns with citizen feedback and goals from Plan El Paso 2012.

By opening up access to 9% and 4% federal housing tax credits and to private capital (tax credit equity, debt), HUD is allowing HOME to redevelop properties to preserve and create public housing units and other affordable apartments that are necessary to support El Paso's low-income population with safe, decent, and affordable housing.
