Mueller’s Affordable Homes Program

The next Mueller Affordable Homes virtual information session is on Thursday, July 25 at 12pm.

About the Program

In support of the community’s goals, the master plan for Mueller includes a commitment to diversity, providing a wide range of home types and prices. In order to reach that goal the Mueller Affordable Homes Program will include 25% of the total for-sale and for-rent residences throughout the community. The program was created specifically to include homes for families earning less than the area’s median income that might not otherwise be able to afford a home or rent an apartment in central Austin.

Catellus, the City of Austin, Mueller homebuilders and apartment developers work together to provide a portion of all the homes at Mueller at a purchase or rental price structured for these households through Mueller’s Affordable Homes Program.

For Sale Program

Each phase of new construction of for-sale homes may have more or less than 25% of those homes in the Affordable Homes Program, as long as the community in whole reaches 25%. For-sale affordable homes will be interspersed alongside market-rate housing within each phase.
