In August, the San Antonio Housing Authority Board of Commissioners approves $486M to build 14 affordable housing developments, including the redevelopment of public housing communities. This funding will also be paired with other funding resources, such as tax credits and tax-exempt bonds. The 14 projects are expected to fund over 3700 affordable units for San Antonio residents.

In early July, Council Member Roberto Trevino filed a request for Council to consider creating a Renters Commission to provide a voice for renters regarding “matters related to affordable housing accessibility, transportation, green and other public space, land use, renter laws/rights, public health and safety, education, economic growth, and life in San Antonio.” With half of the city’s population as renters, Trevino states that understanding renters’ experiences will help develop a coordinated housing system and ensure accountability to the public, which are guiding principles in the city’s housing policy plan adopted last year.  See Council Member Trevino’s request here.
