Group conducting Austin housing equity study

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

A local lobbying group called Texas Appleseed is conducting a survey on housing equity in Austin. Texas Appleseed calls itself a “public interest justice center” with a focus on criminal justice, the school-to-prison pipeline, fair financial services, disaster recovery and fair housing. According to the survey, the objective is to learn about Austinites’ “housing needs and affordability concerns” as the city puts together CodeNEXT, an update of its land use code.
