From Austin-American Statesman

Austin’s City Council has made affordable housing a priority. Through its latest endeavor, the Council approved a program that relaxes building codes for developers who wish to build high density developments so long as at least 50 percent of the community’s units are deemed “affordable” or reserved for households earning less than the area’s median household income (AMI). The AMI for the Austin area was $86,000 annually in 2018.


Founded in 1997, the Texas Affiliation of Affordable Housing Providers (TAAHP) is a non-profit trade association serving as the primary advocate and leading resource for the affordable housing industry in Texas. Our vision is to inspire and engage our members and stakeholders to end the affordable housing crisis in Texas.
