New Educational Video for Public Housing Residents on the RAD Process. We are excited to announce the launch of a new video directed primarily towards public housing residents or those new to the RAD program! The video is designed to provide an overall understanding of the program in an accessible, engaging way. Public housing authorities and property owners are encouraged to show the video at resident meetings, share with resident associations, and upload it to websites as a resource. It can also be found on the RAD website under the “Resident Information" tab.


A Public Housing Transformation in Rock Island, IL - An Interview with Executive Director Susan Anderson. In an ongoing effort to share stories of housing authorities that have used RAD to improve the quality of their housing stock, we sat down with Susan Anderson from the Rock Island Housing Authority (RIHA). Through its non-profit Community Home Partners, RIHA has become a catalyst for preservation of affordable housing and neighborhood redevelopment, positioning itself to take advantage of resources and opportunities as they arise. Read here to see why and how the agency used RAD to renovate the 1960s era Sunset Heights development and ensure that it remains permanently affordable to low-income families, hear about residents' reactions before and after conversion, and learn about the housing authority's plans for their remaining public housing stock.
