Texas Supportive Housing Institute

TSAHC has partnered with the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) to launch the 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 four development teams to participate in the 2021 Institute. The priority markets for this Institute include Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Waco, 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.
