Austin Opportunity Initiative; Affordable Housing

Working with the housing advocacy organization Green Doors in Austin, Texas, the Institute completed an opportunity mapping assessment of the Austin region. Since the completion of this work, advocates across Austin have utilized the opportunity maps to inform decisions. Recently, the City of Austin’s affordable housing development programs utilized the Institute’s opportunity maps to assess affordable housing investments in the city.
