Affordable homes

Joe Rodriguez proudly stands in front of his house following a ceremony signaling the completion of construction on eight affordable homes built through the Texas General Land Office on Friday, May 20, 2022 in Seguin.

In the market for a new place to live affordably, Seguin resident Joe Rodriguez and his wife Mary stumbled upon a find of a lifetime about three years ago.

Now, the Rodriguez family lives comfortably in their recently-built home in south Seguin thanks to some help from federal and state governmental entities. The Rodriguezes live in a rent-controlled house built as part of the Texas General Land Office’s disaster recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey.
