The State of Texas is growing rapidly, leading to an increased need for housing, healthcare, transportation, education and economic opportunities. In 2017, Texas was home to four of the five fastest growing cities in the nation, and its statewide annual growth rate of 1.7 percent ranked 7th in the country. However this rate of change threatens to leave many Texans behind, stuck in poverty and pushed outside of city-limits. In order to ensure that everyone benefits from Texas’s growth and economic gains, affordable housing must be connected with other vital wealth building initiatives. These efforts include closing the financial gap through asset building and access to affordable credit, providing residents educational opportunities and job training, and building inclusive communitiesthrough place-based planning strategies and employer subsidized housing.The Housing + Equitable Communities Summit: Building with Purpose will bring together the public, private and nonprofit sectors to develop a creative and holistic approach in building and sustaining complete communities in Texas. Stay tuned for more information on how to register, and about the agenda and speakers.
