Guide to Affordable Housing

Get the new 2017 Affordable Housing Guide.

The Guide to Affordable Housing in the Greater Austin Area (GAHGAA) is a tool for people seeking affordable rental housing in Austin and the surrounding communities. GAHGAA contains general information on housing programs funded on the local, county, state, and federal levels, as well as specific information about complexes participating in these programs. It contains lists and explanations of rental housing with rent restrictions, income-based rents, and tenant income limits. GAHGAA only lists programs which have project-based assistance; it does not provide information on voucher and certificate programs, temporary housing, or emergency rent payment assistance. It also excludes most duplex and single-family rental dwellings.
