  • On May 1, 2000, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) signed a 10-year Moving to Work (MTW) Agreement with the Housing Authority of the County of San Mateo (HACSM). Subsequently, the MTW agreement was extended through 2028.  The MTW demonstration provides HACSM more flexibility and authorization to develop policies that are outside the limitations of certain HUD regulations and enhances HACSM’s ability to serve the housing needs of low-income individuals and families in San Mateo County.

    Each year, HACSM develops an Annual MTW Plan for the upcoming fiscal year. The Draft 2023 Annual MTW Plan, effective July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023, will be available for review April 1st through April 30th, 2022 at

    The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, acting as the Board of Commissioners of HACSM, will be holding a public hearing regarding the proposed MTW Plan on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022 via Zoom.
