As part of our commitment to providing useful research about issues and trends related to housing, HousingWorks Austin published our fourth version of the Austin City Council District-by-District and Community at a Glance Housing Analysis in September of 2018. This research provides information about the income, rental and home prices, the number of subsidized homes and other factors related to affordability in all 10 city council districts and citywide. The analysis clearly shows that although the city of Austin is making progress in supporting the values highlighted in the Austin Strategic Housing Blueprint, additional efforts are required to address the affordability challenges faced by Austin residents.
We encourage you to view and download the Community at a Glance document and the documents for each district to learn about the housing choices and challenges our neighbors encounter in the various parts of our city. While each document is designed to be straightforward and easy to comprehend, we recommend you begin by reading our executive summary which will alert you to some of the major conclusions the research reveals.
We have provided this research to Austin’s mayor, city council and city manager, as well as other key individuals who are working to solve the housing crisis in our city. We hope it will assist in creating All Kinds of Homes, In All Parts of Town, For All Kinds of People.
