The 2019 Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) rents are now available, which will be used any new awards issued starting in 2019. Current awardees may request to update rents in their existing Commitment to Enter into a Housing Assistance Payments (CHAPs). HUD’s FAQ provides additional information on the process of revising the rent for existing CHAPs.

The RAD application is now fully online in a web-based form, applicants will no longer need to complete an Excel-based application. Before submitting an application, owners must issue RAD Information Notices to residents, hold at least two resident meetings and secure board approval.
