SURVEY SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT FOR CENTRAL TEXAS FAIR HOUSING ASSESSMENT

The City of Austin is joining other local cities, counties and housing authorities to conduct a fair housing study to better understand residents’ housing decisions and their experiences living, working or going to school in the region.

We want to hear from you. What is your housing story? What challenges do you face in finding the housing you need? Can your family find quality schools and employment? Do you think you have experienced housing discrimination?

The survey is open to anyone in the Central Texas region, so please share the survey with your friends, neighbors, and coworkers by June 30, 2018.  At the end of the survey, participants can enter for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card.

U.S. HUD PROGRAM INCOME LIMITS FOR FY 2017-18

Housing and financial empowerment programs are designed to assist Austin's moderate- and low-income residents and families. There are income restrictions for many of these programs set by state and federal guidelines. Each program has different eligibility requirements so be sure to check on the specific criteria of the program you are interested in.

Check your annual household income against the current income limits (effective June 15, 2017) for HOME and CDBG respectively set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The limits are based on the HUD median family income (called MFI for short) in the Austin-Round Rock area. Learn more about HUD's methodology for setting income limits, or read more about rent and income limits issued by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.
