Established by the Texas Apartment Industry in November 2001, the Texas Apartment Association Education Foundation (TAAEF) was created to ensure that Texas’ growing multifamily housing industry has the pipeline of skilled professionals and trained talent it needs for continued growth and success.

TAAEF raises awareness about careers and opportunities in the apartment industry and supports formalized training programs at all level.
