NHCD: Providing Opportunities and Changing Lives

The mission of the City of Austin's Neighborhood Housing and Community Development (NHCD) is to provide housing and community development  services to benefit eligible residents, so they can have access to livable neighborhoods and increase their opportunities for self-sufficiency.

PUBLIC INPUT SOUGHT ON COMMUNITY NEEDS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND SERVICES

Neighborhood Housing and Community Development (NHCD) seeks public input on community needs for affordable housing and public services affecting low- to moderate-income households, persons with disabilities, seniors, and youths in Austin.

Resident input will help set priorities and inform funding decisions, particularly for the FY 2018-19 Action Plan, which seeks an estimated $12 million in federal funding from U.S. HUD Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA).

A public hearing to comment on community needs is scheduled for Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 4 p.m. before the Austin City Council at Austin City Hall, 301 W. Second Street.

Simultaneously, residents can submit written comments until 5 p.m., May 1, either by email to NHCD@austintexas.gov, or by mail to the NHCD Office, P.O. Box 1088, Austin, Texas 78767.

For additional information, call the NHCD Office at 512-974-3100 (voice).

U.S. HUD PROGRAM INCOME LIMITS FOR FY 2017-18

Housing and financial empowerment programs are designed to assist Austin's moderate- and low-income residents and families. There are income restrictions for many of these programs set by state and federal guidelines. Each program has different eligibility requirements so be sure to check on the specific criteria of the program you are interested in.

Check your annual household income against the current income limits (effective June 15, 2017) for HOME and CDBG respectively set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The limits are based on the HUD median family income (called MFI for short) in the Austin-Round Rock area. Learn more about HUD's methodology for setting income limits, or read more about rent and income limits issued by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.
