Travis County’s Supportive Housing Division’s goal is to protect and provide opportunities for those most vulnerable and underrepresented. To accomplish this goal, the Supportive Housing Division will strive to:

  • Ensure a robust interagency, cross-section approach to addressing homelessness.
  • Promote availability of and access to safe, decent, affordable, and stable housing.
  • Prevent homelessness.
  • Reduce criminal justice system interactions for individuals impacted by homelessness by providing increased access to housing.
  • Ensure equitable access to shelter, housing, and services.

AT-Home Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Program

The AT Home Initiative is a first of its kind, multi-partner, five-year initiative that will bring together resources from numerous local governments, local healthcare partners, philanthropies and non-profits to deliver permanent supportive housing to 200-250 of our most vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness in Austin-Travis County. The project is expected to launch the first cohort of clients in the Fall of 2023 and will ramp up over the next three years.

 

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funds housing, infrastructure and social services projects for residents with low and moderate income that live within the Travis County CDBG Service Area, which varies by program year.

As of June 2023, the Travis County CDBG Program is now a part of the newly created HHS Supportive Housing Division. CDBG was formerly housed within the HHS Research & Planning Division. Please following the link below to be re-directed to the CDBG Program web page.
