SAY YES to Quality Homes for All Incomes, In All Areas!
To increase awareness of the need for affordable home development in Houston, HCDD has launched an outreach campaign entitled “Can I Be Your Neighbor?”. The campaign aims to create a well-informed community discourse through targeted educational presentations and informational materials. “Can I Be Your Neighbor” is intended to decrease misconceptions and opposition to affordable home development and promote quality homes for all incomes in all areas of Houston. To learn more about this campaign visit www.houstontx.gov/housing/SayYes.
We invite you to take a survey to give us your views on affordable homes in Houston (click here for survey link).
