Join a Tour of Affordable Housing in Austin
Each year, HousingWorks Austin organizes bus tours of affordable housing. It’s eye opening for all involved.
Based on your group’s interests and needs, we arrange the tour route, the expert speakers, and the educational materials. Topics include: public-private partnerships, housing for special needs populations, permanent supportive housing, housing and transit, housing and education, and the list goes on and on.
Each tour is unique and targeted to your group’s interest and expertise. It’s a great opportunity for community groups to see affordable housing on the ground, learn more about who lives in affordable housing, and figure out how to increase affordability across our community.
