City of Austin runs online survey on housing need

The City of Austin is seeking public input to help focus its affordable housing finance programs, including the use of the final allocation of the city’s 2006 General Obligation housing bonds.

We encourage public participation in this survey, which is scheduled to wrap up next week.

The survey can be accessed here

More information about the public input process can be found here.

1/8/10 Update:

TxLIHIS Co-Director Karen Paup points out that an unscientific internet poll probably isn’t a better way to allocate the funds than the original General Obligation Bond public input process  (or  the professional market study Austin recently commissioned to define its housing needs).
