In the midst of Austin’s affordability crisis, an Austin consortium, co-led by the Housing Authority of the City of Austin, developed a solution to help Austin residents and affordable housing providers make better affordable housing decisions. You’ll hear about who the players are and what they needed, and how Code for America Fellows created the first comprehensive affordable housing hub and visualization tool. The free and open system, supported by a wide range of stakeholders, provides a way to track and share affordable housing data well into the future.
