HEART Grantees Convene in Houston for
Roundtable and NeighborWorks Training
On January 27th - 29th, HEART grantees convened for a roundtable and participated in a NeighborWorks training designed to help them with disaster recovery. The HEART program provides grants and te chnical assistance to nonprofits providing housing assistance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey, and we co-administer the program alongside Enterprise Community Partners.

On January 27th, HEART grantees participated in a roundtable designed to share common experiences, learn from each other, get connected to resources, and hear from potential fund ers in their area.

Attendees had the option of staying for a NeighborWorks training the next two days entitled, "Picking Up the Pieces: The First 30 days of Response & Recovery." We were excited to host many of the nonprofits we've been working with through the HEART program and look forward to our collaborative effort to help Texans rebuild after Hurricane Harvey.

Predicting 2020's Hottest Housing Markets
Last week, we reflected on housing trends from the past decade. This week, we're looking ahead and breaking down what experts predict is on the horizon for housing markets in 2020. 

After analyzing data from a recent survey conducted by Pulsenomics and Zillow, experts agree that Texas' metro areas will continue to be among the nation's hottest housing markets in 2020.
Every year brings change, but one of the best parts about the end of a decade is reflecting on how things have developed over a longer period of time. This week, we take a look at a recent article from RENTCafé that analyzes 15 trends seen in housing over the past 10 years.
