City launches affordable housing search tool

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin has a new online search tool aimed at matching renters with affordable housing in the city. The Affordable Housing Online Search Tool, or AHOST, maps income-restricted housing for would-be renters based on household income and size and returns results that include lease information, cost, schools, amenities and application criteria. According to a press release from the city about the new tool: “The searchable map and listing of income-restricted affordable rental housing is drawn from the Comprehensive Affordable Housing Directory, which is a comprehensive online data tool for planning and tracking housing inventories and construction programs across the City of Austin.” A live demo of AHOST will stream today at 10 a.m. on the city’s ATXN.
