NHCD: Providing Opportunities and Changing Lives

The mission of the City of Austin's Neighborhood Housing and Community Development (NHCD) is to provide housing and community development  services to benefit eligible residents, so they can have access to livable neighborhoods and increase their opportunities for self-sufficiency.

SURVEY SEEKING PUBLIC INPUT FOR CENTRAL TEXAS FAIR HOUSING ASSESSMENT

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

Access the survey at www.centraltexasfairhousing.org

The survey is open to anyone in the Central Texas region, so please share it with friends, neighbors, and coworkers by June 30, 2018.  The survey is confidential, with responses combined and used for statistical purposes only. 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 2018-19

Housing and financial empowerment programs 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 in which you are interested.

Check your annual household income against the current income limits (effective June 1, 2018) 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.
