San Antonio, Texas (September 16, 2022) – A comprehensive five-year strategic plan that will pave the way for how the San Antonio Housing Trust will address critical affordable housing needs in our community is now available for public review and input.
The strategic plan is the result of a long-term community engagement process that began in 2018 with the adoption of the City’s Housing Policy Framework, which challenged the SAHT board and executive staff to assess and realign the Trust’s impact in San Antonio’s housing ecosystem. A wide range of advocacy groups, development stakeholders, institutional organizations, and community stakeholders provided feedback and input to help guide the process.
SAHT’s strategic planning process was designed to align with the City of San Antonio’s Strategic Housing Implementation Plan (SHIP) which establishes goals, timelines, actions, funding approaches, and institutional partners, like the San Antonio Housing Trust, who are critical to achieving the affordable housing production and preservation needs.
“We recognize that the San Antonio Housing Trust is not the only partner in our community aligned with the SHIP affordable production and preservation goals in our community,” said Pete Alanis, Executive Director of San Antonio Housing Trust. “However, we are uniquely positioned due to our expertise, financing tools, and funding to effectively facilitate production and preservation efforts which will have long term positive impacts in San Antonio.”
The draft of the Housing Trust’s 5-year Strategic Plan may be accessed online on the Housing Trust’s website. Public comment, which may be sent by mail, voicemail, or email, will be accepted through October 12, 2022. An amended and final plan based on public input will then be presented to the Housing Trust board for approval consideration in late October.
“This 5 Year Plan will fulfill a commitment to our community who wanted to see our organization base its decision making on a set of core values that align with equity, transparency, and meaningful impact,” said Pete Alanis.
