RADBlast! Full RAD Portfolio Conversion in Knoxville, TN, Portfolio Conversions Across America, and more!
Since 2016, Knoxville's Community Development Corporation (KCDC) has converted over 3,000 public housing units through 22 properties through RAD, investing over $93 million in renovations. Within the next two years, they plan to convert their last three public housing properties and complete them. We sat down with Ben Bentley, the Executive Director of KCDC to discuss their rehab of Lonsdale Homes through RAD and how it supported their broader agency goals. Mr. Bentley also offers his insights on key questions we see many PHAs grapple with including why the organization chose to convert through RAD, how they determined what they had the capacity to take on and what they needed to bring in partners to support, and his advice for other PHA leadership and staff pursuing RAD and other tools to improve their public housing stocks. >> Read All of RADBlast!
