Texas Housing Impact Fund Success Stories

Through our collaboration with a network of local partners across the state, TSAHC is able to finance a range of affordable single-family and multi-family housing developments. Below are examples of projects we have financed.

  • Builders of Hope

    Builders of Hope Community Development Corporation | Dallas, Texas

    Builders of Hope Community Development Corporation builds energy efficient homes in the West Dallas, Pleasant Grove, and Oak Cliff neighborhoods of Dallas, Texas. The organization used a revolving loan from TSAHC to construct modern three and four bedroom affordable homes. Monthly mortgage payments range between $600 to $800 a month which is less than most renters pay monthly.

    Norman Henry, President/CEO of Builders of Hope CDC, commented on TSAHC’s financing stating, “We need flexibility with our lending to help us provide homes for people with tight budgets and special financial needs, and TSAHC provided exactly that.” 

  • The Willows

    The Willows | Austin, Texas

    The Willows is a 64-unit multifamily complex in Austin, Texas. TSAHC provided a 15-year, $1.2 million construction loan to the Mary Lee Foundation, and the organization leveraged TSAHC funding to receive additional funding from the Federal Home Loan Bank and the City of Austin. The Mary Lee Foundation, founded in 1963 by Charlene Crump, inspires and involves persons with disabilities through programs, advocacy, and education. 

  • Vista Rita Blanca

    Diana Lopez, Executive Director of Guadalupe Economic Services Corporation, commented on the financing provided saying, “TSAHC’s financial commitment was the critical link in building the Rita Blanca project and creating safe and affordable housing for families who otherwise would not be able to find a suitable place to live."
