New Home Development Program

The City of Houston works with community partners to create new, high-quality single-family homes for residents that can be purchased at affordable prices. Most of our work is achieved through the New Home Development Program. This partnership with the Houston Land Bank and Houston Community Land Trust helps build individual homes in key neighborhoods across Houston. Select projects are also taken on to create new master-planned communities and homes.
