The Texas Rent Relief Program is now approving more than $1 million in assistance each day, and that number will continue to grow exponentially over the coming days and weeks. The $1.3 billion dollar program is scaling up at an incredibly fast pace, and we encourage eligible households to apply.
As of April 9, approximately $6 million has been approved for assistance to eligible households. We understand the urgency in which this rent and utility assistance is needed, and our review and payment approval processes are improving daily.
To help the review process move more quickly, please be sure to act on the following:
If you have questions about applying or need assistance with your application, please contact us toll-free at 833-9TX-RENT (833-989-7368) Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., or email us at email@example.com.
Funds are still available, and TDHCA encourages eligible households to apply.
