RAD is an acroynm for Rental Assistance Demonstration and is a new program offered by HUD which serves as an alternate to the Public Housing Program.  Cumberland Housing applied to HUD in November 2015 to convert all five of our Public Housing development over to the RAD program.  On January 10, 2017, HUD announced that the applications for Fort Cumberland Homes and John F. Kennedy Homes had been approved to begin the conversion process.  The process of conversion will take several months and final plans will not be confirmed until late 2017 or spring of 2018 at the latest.  For more information on the RAD program click here for the RAD Information Notice which has been provided to all current residents.

Cumberland Housing looks forward to completing the conversion process and improving the appearance of the developments in our portfiolio.through a major renovation project.  The end result will continue to meet our mission of providing safe, modern and affordable housing to the residents of Cumberland. The following meetings are being conducted to give residents of any development the opportunity to attend and ask questions, voice concerns or listen to information provided.
