New Research NOFA: Impact of RAD on Children in HUD Assisted Households

HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research
Thursday, July 30, 2020

The Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) is a program that aims at preserving the affordability of federally assisted properties and improving their physical and financial condition. The objective of this cooperative agreement is to support research project(s) that will produce policy-relevant evidence on the implementation of the RAD program and its effect on children’s well-being. A wide range of research questions and research design approaches will be considered within the parameters outlined in the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). Applicants are encouraged to draw on their knowledge and expertise to propose specific research projects that further HUD’s goal of producing policy-relevant knowledge about the effect of RAD on children. The NOFA includes the list of Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) that have RAD properties with households that include children, to ensure that applicants focus their research in relevant sites. PD&R is looking to make 1 or possibly 2 awards for a maximum total funding of $750,000. For more information and to submit an application, please see the following:

We encourage you to apply or spread the word of this opportunity throughout your networks, such as your organization's email lists or newsletters. The deadline to submit an application to HUD is July 30, 2020. Please contact Madlyn Wohlman-Rodriguez at [email protected] for any questions.
