Impact Hub supports new teams working on housing solutions

Wednesday, December 19, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

Impact Hub Austin has introduced its latest cohorts of startups and beginning-stage nonprofit groups focused on finding solutions for Austin’s housing and affordability crisis. The seven teams will receive financial support and business guidance to pursue their missions. They are: Austin CityUp’s Affordable Housing Data Hub, which aims to make the search for affordable housing more efficient; MEASURE, a group that bridges gaps through data and public education with the help of local communities; the Tiny Heights, a community that promotes economic prosperity and a smooth success to home ownership; Chicon Micro Units, affordable housing stock in the Chestnut neighborhood; Boomers Collaborative Foundation, which offers housing and business solutions for single adults over the age of 55 who lack family support; Almost Home Financial, a financial services pilot program launching next year; and Build With Humanity, a pilot program examining the connection between health care inequity and affordability issues.
