Current Investment Opportunities

 At TSAHC, we consider our funders to be partners in our mission to serve the housing needs of low-income Texans. We take pride in our track record of putting our investors’ funds to efficient and effective use. TSAHC currently offers the following investment opportunities.  For more information on any of these investment opportunities, please contact Janie Taylor or Katie Howard Claflin.

  • Texas Housing Impact Fund

    Through our Texas Housing Impact Fund, TSAHC provides short-term and long-term loans to housing developers seeking to build affordable housing in their communities. TSAHC provides flexible loan rates that can be combined with other sources of financing, which assists affordable housing developers facing insufficient credit availability in traditional markets.

    How will my investment be used?   TSAHC uses program revenue and private funding, including grants, donations, and program-related investments, to provide loans to local housing developers. Your investment in the Texas Housing Impact Fund will help TSAHC help a local developer create affordable housing for low-income families in Texas.

  • Affordable Communities of Texas (ACT) Program

    ACT is Texas’ first statewide land bank and land trust program.  Through ACT, we acquire foreclosed and vacant properties from financial institutions, and then partner with local housing developers to turn these properties into affordable housing for working families.

    How will my investment be used?  Your investment will be used to purchase foreclosed properties from financial institutions and/or pay for maintenance costs until these properties can be sold or leased to low-income families.
