Creating Moves to Opportunity

Creating Moves to Opportunity (CMTO) is a housing search assistance program offered to families with young children who receive a Housing Choice Voucher. CMTO provides families with services aimed at reducing rental barriers to support them in moving to opportunity neighborhoods.

Innovative research shows that where people live matters, especially for young children. Kids who grow up in opportunity neighborhoods are likely to earn more money as adults and are more likely to attend college as compared to their peers who live outside of opportunity neighborhoods.

CMTO is a joint project between Seattle Housing Authority and King County Housing Authority with support from InterIm CDA.
