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.

AUSTIN’S ANTI-DISPLACEMENT TASK FORCE WANTS YOUR HELP JUNE 4

Austin’s Anti-Displacement Task Force is hosting a Community Forum on Saturday, June 4 from 6 pm - 7:30 pm at the Gus Garcia Recreation Center, 1201 E. Rundberg Lane.

Public input is needed to address displacement issues and identify methods to preserve Austin's cultural assets. Austin City Council created the task force to explore how displacement affects Austin and to develop strategies for supporting and expanding affordable housing and local businesses.

Linguistic and hearing impaired translation services will be available, as well as childcare and refreshments. For more information, email NHCD@austintexas.gov.

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

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 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.
