As part of its strategic priority to end homelessness, HUD encourages communities to explore Moving On strategies in their communities for clients in permanent supportive housing (PSH) who may no longer need or want the intensive services offered in PSH but continue to need assistance to maintain their housing. Moving On strategies challenge a community to create partnerships between the Continuum of Care (CoC) and mainstream housing programs, such as public housing, the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, and HUD-funded multifamily housing providers.
Part of HUD’s strategic initiative is to give communities tools and best practice examples that will help them implement a successful Moving On strategy. These resources include resource inventory tools, guidebooks, case-studies, and lessons learned from other communities who have implemented a Moving On strategy.
Moving On Services Guide
This guide is designed to help communities understand and design services for PSH program participants who would like to pursue moving from PSH to other affordable housing options.
PHA Moving On: How-To Guide
This guide walks through the benefits of establishing a Moving On program from the Public Housing Agency (PHA) perspective, including preference language and program set-up from communities that have implemented Moving On.
Project Plan Template
This template was created to help communities navigate the team-building, design, and planning efforts for a Moving On initiative. The accompanying user guide provides details on how to use the template as well as helpful resources.
HUD designed this tool to help CoCs take inventory of available resources they can use for a Moving On strategy, identify gaps, and design an effective initiative responsive to local needs that maximizes local resources.
