Moving to Opportunity for Fair Housing (MTO) is a 10-year research demonstration that combines tenant-based rental assistance with housing counseling to help very low-income families move from poverty-stricken urban areas to low-poverty neighborhoods. One of the advantages that tenant-based rental assistance has over subsidized housing projects and public housing is that it allows the recipient to choose modestly priced private housing in neighborhoods that can offer ample educational, employment, and social opportunities. Five public housing authorities (Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City) administer this demonstration project. Households chosen for the demonstrations experimental group receive housing counseling and vouchers for rental housing in areas with less than 10 percent poverty.
