Mueller’s Affordable Homes Program

Join a virtual information session.

The next session is taking place on January 26th 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. Mueller ‘s affordable homes 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 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

The Mueller Affordable Homes Program includes 25% (approximately 1,550 at completion) of the total for-sale and for-rent residences throughout the community.

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.
