Sunset Heights Recieves $12-Million in Renovations as Part of RAD Conversion
In 2015, RIHA identified Sunset Heights for conversion to the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) of
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Under the RAD program, Sunset Heights will shift
from the Public Housing program to the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher (PBV) program. RAD allows public
housing agencies like RIHA to leverage public and private debt and equity to reinvest in its properties to
make much needed capital improvements while also allowing units to remain affordable.
In conjunction with the RAD conversion to the Section 8 program, Sunset Heights is undergoing approximately
$12-million in renovations to the buildings’ infrastructure, exterior, interior common areas and management
offices, plus all 141 apartments.
