Construction & Relocation
6 Things You Should Know About RAD Relocation
Right to Remain or Return – All public housing tenants living at the property before RAD conversion have the right to remain at the property. If tenants are required to temporarily relocate because of construction at the property, they have the right to return to the same property after construction is complete.
Right to Return – Housing authorities and owners cannot voluntarily or involuntarily relocate any tenants before the effective date of the RAD Conversion Commitment (RCC).
Opportunity to Object – If proposed plans would preclude a tenant from returning to the property, the tenant must be given an opportunity to object to such plans. If the tenant objects, the housing authority must alter the plans to accommodate the resident’s right to return.
Permanent, Voluntary Relocation – If a resident prefers to voluntarily and permanently relocate, the housing authority must secure informed, written consent from the tenant.
Prohibition on Rescreening – Current households cannot be denied the right to return or relocation housing based on any rescreening, income eligibility, or income targeting.
Written Relocation Plan – If there is going to be any permanent relocation (including transfer of assistance) or temporary relocation anticipated to last > 12 months, housing authorities must create a written relocation plan.
