Making Housing More Accessible
Access to safe, stable, affordable housing provides multiple and long-lasting benefits for individuals and contributes to a vibrant community. Austin Community Foundation invests in the protection, preservation, and production of housing that is affordable and attainable through collaborative philanthropic solutions.
Affordable housing can take many forms, and a myriad of financing sources is necessary to create the spectrum of housing options needed in Central Texas. That’s why Austin Community Foundation makes impact investments in the form of low-interest rate loans to increase the capacity of housing-focused organizations that otherwise would have to seek more expensive funding sources and delay projects that are desperately needed today.
