CHA Paves the Way with Work Requirements and Washington Takes Notice

Public housing authorities have always had to strike a sensitive balance of providing affordable housing to residents who are financially fragile, while trying to move them to a level of independence where assistance is not needed. With the cost of living outpacing wages, that challenge becomes more and more difficult, and the obstacles these residents face can be overwhelming and distressing.
