Travis County housing boards seek new members

Friday, November 16, 2012

The Travis County Commissioners Court is seeking to fill two seats each on the Board of Commissioners of the Housing Authority of Travis County and the Board of Directors of the Strategic Housing Finance Corp., with applications from interested parties due by 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, 2012.

Both boards offer opportunities to share in the discussion on Austin area affordable housing. The Housing Authority operates and maintains 105 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development public housing units for low-income families and manages a housing voucher program. The Strategic Housing Finance Corp. issues bonds and uses Low Income Housing Tax Credits to buy housing and build new developments.

The vacancies will become available Jan. 1, 2013, with the new appointees to the five-member Housing Authority expected to serve two-year terms. The two new appointees to the seven-member Strategic Housing Finance board will serve a staggered term ending Dec. 31, 2015, or Dec. 31, 2016, respectively.
