In 2015, HousingWorks Austin asserted that the five steps to keeping Austin affordable were to PRESERVE existing affordable housing options, to continue INVESTing in affordable housing, to LEVERAGE ways to stretch the dollars we spend on housing, to foster PARTNERships between public and private entities and to INCLUDE all parts of the city in the effort to create all types of affordable housing through new policies.
