MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND THE BENEFITS FOR NON-PROFIT HOUSING AGENCIES
MetadataShow full item record
Communication between the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs and the non-profit housing organizations who receive funding can be improved by using custom-written software. Lack of communication can mean either the information is late, or that the information that is received is incorrect. Meetings with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs enabled formulation of what is required of the non-profit organizations. A program using Microsoft Excel and its macro programming language using Visual Basic has been developed to help the non-profit organizations fill out the required forms more efficiently and effectively. The specific non-profit organizations aided by this research are the Self Help Centers in the colonias. Colonia is Spanish for neighborhood or community located on the Texas-Mexico border and the majority of the people who live in this community are families of low and very low income. These communities lack safe, sanitary and sound housing.
