Do You Need Affordable Housing?

HousingWorks is a policy, research, and advocacy organization. As such, we do not provide affordable housing directly. But there are several resources that provide useful and up-to-date information.

If you’re seeking affordable housing in Austin, check out our Community Partners and also visit these tried-and-true local resources:

The Austin Tenants’ Council publishes the Guide to Affordable Housing in the Greater Austin Area. The most current guide was published in 2015, so it has up-to-date information. You can download their affordable housing guide here.

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs maintains a clearinghouse of all the properties that they have subsidized.  You can input your preferred location and other housing preferences, and the online housing database will provide you a list of alternatives.

The Texas Housing Counselor has an online database of low-income housing options.

Affordable Housing Online maintains a current list of open Texas Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting lists as well as info on more than 135 affordable rental housing communities containing thousands of affordable apartments across Austin.

Among these resources, we hope that you will be able to find an affordable housing choice that meets your needs. Questions? Please contact us.
