RAD Public Housing

What is HUD’s RAD program?

With a $26 billion backlog of deferred maintenance at public housing sites nationwide, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) knew an innovative approach was needed to remedy the situation.

That was the genesis of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program, now in effect throughout the land, including San Francisco.

This program means San Francisco’s public housing sites leverage debt and equity — from public and private sources — to reinvest in the public housing stock.
