Friday, August 24, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

The Housing Authority of the City of Austin recently received three awards of merit from the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials. The awards were given in categories for housing and community development, program innovation for residential units, and client services. HACA’s Resident Protection team won for its goal of easing challenges in moving, promoting community engagement and developing external relationships. The Involved Dads of Action Developing and Succeeding (I-DADS) team received its award for encouraging fathers and father figures in communities and helping men improve their parenting and co-parenting relationships. The agency’s Residential, Digital, Energy and Mobility Ambassadors help with designing programs in communities and help build professional skills. The awards recognize agencies that find new and innovative ways to improve communities and the livelihoods of residents in affordable housing communities.
