Rapid growth and development is changing the livelihood in Texas, especially San Antonio, which is expecting at least 1 million more residents by 2040.

How is the city finding solutions to not only demand for homes, but ensuring access to fair and affordable housing?

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act – a key milestone of the civil rights era’s push to prevent discrimination. Who is protected by this federal law and under San Antonio’s local fair housing ordinance?

In 2017, San Antonio voters approved the city’s first bond proposition dedicated to housing, worth $20 million. Which projects have started and progress has been made?

How are we addressing gentrification in our neighborhoods? What’s being done to avoid displacement scenarios? What role do developers and neighborhoods play in local housing policies?

What changes to San Antonio’s housing strategy could have a meaningful impact?
