Pool at The LandingsSAN ANTONIO – Brooks City Base is launching a new housing incentive program for Brooks Development Authority staff. The program is designed to encourage staff to support the continued revitalization of the Southeast Side by providing financial incentives to either rent or own a property within a designated area. The primary residence must be within a three-mile radius of Brooks and bounded by Highway 90, Rigsby Avenue, Foster Road, Blue Wing Road and Pleasanton Road.

“People are finding increasing opportunities to live and work on Brooks City Base and in the surrounding area, and some of our staff have already realized the benefits of living here,” said Brooks City Base President & CEO Leo Gomez. “We want to empower more of them to do so.”

The program is available to all of the Brooks Development Authority’s more than 30 employees willing to make a home on the south east side of town their primary residence. It is modeled after similar programs by entities such as the City of San Antonio, and most recently Spurs Sports and Entertainment. It offers up to $2,400 annually for renters and a one-time incentive of $3,600 for those purchasing a property in the designated area. Renters must remain employed with the organization and living in the unit for a minimum of 12 months; those purchasing a property must remain employed with Brooks and living in the home for a minimum of 24 months.
