San Antonio, TX councilmember Roberto Treviño joins Maurice and Imani Darden to discuss energy efficiency and affordable housing sustainability. LISC launched its San Antonio office in 2016, the same year Councilman Treviño launched Under 1 Roof, a no-cost, needs-based program to retrofit the roofs of qualified residents. We are pleased to have a local official with us to share more about the conjoining of community, local politics, energy efficiency and housing stabilization.
As our country celebrates LGBTQ pride, we're focusing on some of the challenges for LGBTQ people living in rural America. Community developers are in a key position to support LGBTQ rural residents as part of our work helping build flourishing and inclusive communities.
As chair of LISC San Antonio, Cisneros is passionate about helping bridge the affordable housing gap because it aligns with a housing first philosophy. "It treats housing as part of the solution," Cisneros said. "Let's get you in housing, let's get you warm, let's get you well, let's get you a good blanket and a bed where you can sleep for the night."
