What policies do you support to make Austin a more affordable place to live for all residents?

Take immediate action to retain existing affordable housing and stem displacement of residents. Commit to an equitable plan to ensure affordable housing in every Austin zip code. Promote complete communities throughout Austin so all residents have access to schools, groceries, transit and other basic services. Simplify and strengthen the city’s affordable housing density bonus program. Seek legislative changes to fix root causes of unaffordability, notably our broken school finance system, and legalize common affordability tools such as linkage fees, rent stabilization and inclusionary zoning.
