Houston Housing Strategy & Implementation

Your Insight into Houston's Housing

This webpage is the definitive source for information and community engagement regarding the housing sector in the District of Houston. It offers current updates and insights into the development of Houston's housing strategy.


To address the evolving housing needs, the District of Houston has initiated an update to the 2020 Housing Needs Report and the creation of a Housing Strategy and Implementation Plan, in partnership with CitySpaces Consulting with funding through the Northern Healthy Communities Fund (NHCF). This project aims to evaluate current housing conditions, anticipate future needs in light of economic shifts, and enhance housing options for improved community living.

The Current Housing Landscape

Over 70% of households in Houston are owner-occupied, while approximately 30% are rentals. A considerable portion of the housing stock predates the 1980s, indicating a potential need for updates and expansion. Additional challenges in the current housing landscape include the absence of emergency shelters and supportive housing, along with a rise in unauthorized encampments on municipal lands. These issues underscore the need for a comprehensive and responsive housing strategy.
