SAN ANTONIO (October 29, 2020) — City Council approved an ordinance to fund two initiatives – a homelessness services outreach application and a digital affordable housing portal – which stem from the City’s CivTechSA program in partnership with Geekdom. In response to this vote, Councilman Manny Pelaez issued the following statement:

“These CivTechSA initiatives will optimize our capacity to meet our organizational goals of mitigating displacement, fostering housing security, and bolstering our homelessness response network. 

Above all, they demonstrate the importance of our Office of Innovation and Information Technology Services Department teams, the dynamic startup and incubation programs they lead, and the culture of innovation and collaboration they are fostering in San Antonio in coordination with the Neighborhood and Housing Services Department, Department of Human Services, Office of the City Attorney, and Department of Government and Public Affairs. 

 

By developing new tools to meet community needs in this dynamic and collaborative way, we can tackle local challenges while giving root to bold new enterprises in our local tech industry.”
