A Holiday Message from David Long
As this unique and challenging year comes to a close, I want to take a moment to thank you for your partnership and commitment to TSAHC. As our homes have evolved into offices, classrooms, and secure places, we're more appreciative than ever of your unwavering support of our mission to provide a safe, stable, and affordable home to every Texan. 

When reflecting on this year, two themes emerge: adaptability and flexibility. Like many businesses, we quickly changed the way we operated in March to adjust to the new normal. We appreciate the flexibility of our partners, which, in turn, allowed us to adapt and provide new opportunities to those we serve.

Podcast Episode 12: Resources for Homeowners Worried About Their Mortgage Payments
We've previously covered how to buy a home, but what resources are available for current homeowners that are struggling to make mortgage payments during a financial crisis? We meet with Joyce McDonald with FrameWorks Community Development Corporation to discuss trustworthy assistance options, as well as how to recognize scams.
Understanding the Community Reinvestment Act
The Community Reinvestment Act, or CRA, was enacted in 1977 to encourage lenders to meet the credit needs of the communities in which they operate, including low and moderate-income (LMI) communities. 

Originally enacted to combat redlining, the CRA still plays a vital role in helping ensure banks continue to meet the needs of everyone they serve, regardless of income or neighborhood location.
