Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

San Antonio is currently experiencing long-term population growth which is driving the need for affordable housing. Most new housing production in San Antonio is priced above what low-and moderate-income households can afford. Modest household incomes and existing cost burden make increases in housing costs a significant concern for many San Antonioans.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Alamo Area Mutual Housing Association, Inc. dba Alamo Community Group is a local non-profit organization who aims to provide affordable housing opportunities for working families making 80% area median incomes.

Based on ACG's 2016 Strategic Plan, strategies include developing more single family units in the 78237 zip code; finding more funding to provide down payment assistance programs; developing additional multi-family units inside Loop 410 targeting 60-80% AMI families; preserving existing low and very low income units in portfolio; and expand support services to residents based on community needs.

ACG has been a local non-profit since 1990. As ACG has grown, much detail has been placed on building internal capacity. This capacity has been specifically developed in areas that can assist the organization in aggressively pushing forward with providing more affordable housing opportunities to local working families. ACG continues to work closely with the City of San Antonio to address the evolving housing needs of its families.
