The Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation and CSH have partnered to launch the (virtual) Texas Supportive Housing Institute to provide technical assistance to developers, service providers and property managers interested in creating and operating supportive housing in their communities.
TSAHC will select up to six development teams to participate in the 2020 Institute. The priority markets for this Institute include Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas/Fort Worth, the Rio Grande Valley, and El Paso, but quality projects from other communities may be considered if space allows. The Institute is conducted free of charge for participating development teams.
About the Texas Supportive Housing Institute
The Texas Supportive Housing Institute provides a forum for effective team building among project managers, direct service providers, and property management staff. Teams will receive information, resources and tools to create successful permanent supportive housing projects, to move people out of long-term homelessness, and to help formerly homeless tenants remain stably housed.
Development teams will be selected through a competitive application process. Applications should be submitted via email to Michael Wilt at firstname.lastname@example.org and are due by Wednesday, July 22.
The Institute is tentatively planned for the following dates, which may be modified based on collaboration with selected teams. Due to the uncertainty related to COVID-19, all sessions will be conducted remotely.
- Session 1: 9/15, 9/16 & 9/17
- Session 2: 10/13, 10/14 & 10/15
- Session 3: 11/3, 11/4 & 11/5
- Session 4: 12/15, 12/16 & 12/17
