The Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program represents a difficult challenge for any Public Housing Authority (PHA). New requirements of the RAD program mean changes in business processes, technology and compliance. Failure to understand these requirements can result in compliance and property management mistakes that can lead to audit findings, tax credit recapture, litigation, and more.

The RightSource RAD Conversion Consulting team partners with PHAs, owner/agents, and investors to ensure business and compliance operations are ready for RAD and supported with properly configured software and training.  Whether our RAD Consulting Team is focused on Yardi system requirements, or another software – we’ll get you into the best possible position to succeed.
