The Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) is a preservation program focused on protecting and improving the nation’s at-risk public housing stock.

RAD allows housing authorities to leverage private capital through a variety of proven financing tools as a key solution in tackling the nearly $26 billion in unmet capital backlog needs in the Public Housing Program. RAD was initially authorized with a unit cap of 60,000 in the FY12 appropriations bill, which has since been lifted to 225,000 in the FY17 appropriations bill. To date, RAD has leveraged $3.8 billion in private financing and construction funding to recapitalize and convert approximately 60,000 public housing units to a Section 8 platform.
