ABOUT THE EVENT
Join us for a timely forum on linking transit and affordable housing policies in our region to build sustainable, inclusive communities. As Austin prepares for a November bond referendum on a new high-capacity transit investment, we will explore why Austin needs to link its plans for transit with affordable housing. Come learn from national and local experts about the tools available to get transit and affordable housing on track together. The conference program is available on the UT Opportunity Forum's website.
