Apartment Community Engagement (ACE) Voter Registration Program

The Office of the Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector & Voter Registrar in conjunction with the League of Women Voters and the Austin Apartment Association has developed the Apartment Community Engagement (ACE) Program to better serve the unique voter registration needs of apartment community residents in Travis, Williamson and Hays Counties.  

When you become an ACE Program participant you will be better equipped to offer a wide range of voter registration activities.  You can choose to include postage-paid a Texas Voter Registration Card and informational pamphlets in your welcome and move-out packets, obtain digital voter registration and engagement PSAs for you to share with your residents on social media, newsletters or e-mail, host on-site voter registration drive, and other voter engagement activities. You decide which services to offer. Engage today!


City of Austin Project Connect

Project Connect is a comprehensive transit plan with a rail system that travels under downtown to improve on-time performance. It would also provide expanded bus service with an all-electric bus fleet.

Project Connect was approved by Austin voters in 2020. The ballot measure was a collaborative process between the Capital Metro board and the Austin City Council that resulted in the approval of the Initial Investment portion of Project Connect.


Austin Energy Multifamily Requirements and Rebates

Multifamily properties must conduct a specialized energy audit the year the property turns 10 years old, and you must make Energy Audit results available to potential and current residents. Unless your property is a High Energy Use property, ECAD does not require that you make energy efficiency improvements. However, if you want to make energy efficiency improvements based on your audit results, Austin Energy provides rebates and other incentives to make upgrades.
