Austin’s affordable housing, mapped

Thursday, April 5, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Low- and middle-income Austinites looking for a rental now have a handy resource. The city has developed a detailed Affordable Housing Listing: a compilation of “income-restricted affordable housing units subsidized or incentivized by the City of Austin.” Users can browse by region, and the listings have information about the unit, such as single family or multifamily; housing type, such as senior or student; and contact information. There is also a map! These tools can be found on the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department’s Resources for Renters website, which also hosts a bunch of other information for house hunters. The department promises that the housing listing will be updated regularly; real-time updates are not available because of the rapid pace of the city’s rental market.
