The Housing Authority of Travis County is committed to building and maintaining affordable housing for low to mixed income families in our community, without discrimination. We seek to promote safe neighborhoods by partnering with individuals and organizations to provide housing and facilitate employment opportunities and education benefits for eligible individuals to improve their quality of life.
The Housing Authority completed its first Travis County public housing project in 1980, now known as Summit Oaks (24 units). Shortly thereafter, Eastern Oaks (30 units) and Alexander Oaks (51 units) were built. The total number of units of this type that the Housing Authority manages is 105.
In 2016, the Housing Authority converted the 105 Public Housing units to Affordable Housing through HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program, enabling the Housing Authority to make improvements to its properties and improve residents’ lives, while also ensuring the properties remain affordable to low-income families for the next 40 years.
