Housing Support

The Central Texas Housing Navigation program exists to support partnerships across the community, including government, for-profit, and nonprofit sectors in increasing consumer access to affordable and accessible housing.

CTADVRC Housing Navigators support developers, municipal and regional planners, public housing authorities and participate in local housing coalitions to garner practical solutions for housing that is:

  • Integrated Housing — Most conventional and affordable housing developments should include units for persons with disabilities and older adults
  • Accessible — Housing developments that eliminate barriers to physical access to ensure more effective and efficient occupancy
  • Affordable — Providing units that cost no more than 30 percent of a household’s income is the key to affordability.
