The 'Affordability Unlocked' Development Bonus Program waives or modifies some development restrictions in exchange for providing low- and moderate-income housing. The program is designed to increase the number of affordable housing units being developed in Austin and fully leverage public resources by allowing housing providers to build more units in their developments when significant amounts of affordable housing are included. In return for setting aside half of a development’s total units as affordable, bonuses include height and density increases, parking and compatibility waivers, and reductions in minimum lot sizes.
