Austin Habitat's impact is measured by far greater than the number of homes built, sold, and repaired. It is measured by the thousands of families served each year across our programs and the ripple effect of our activities. Our gross regional economic output exceeds $10 million annually. That economic activity is generated by the direct purchases of goods and services, and the compounding effect those purchases have as suppliers and partners buy materials and labor, in addition to the more than $500,000 in property taxes Habitat homeowners pay annually.
For more detail on our economic output, check out our 2012 Economic Impact Study conducted by the Texas Association of Community Development Corporations.
