We know receiving housing assistance is vital to you! New changes to the Texas Rent Relief application now make applying even easier and will help get payments out faster. A detailed summary of the changes is available at https://texasrentrelief.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/TRR-Program-Changes.pdf.
Funds are still available, and TDHCA encourages eligible households to apply with the simplified application. If you have questions or need assistance with your application, please contact us toll-free at 833-9TX-RENT (833-989-7368) Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., or email us at email@example.com.
TDHCA also strongly urges landlords to postpone pursuing evictions at this time, as we are fast-tracking applications submitted for the Texas Eviction Diversion Program (TEDP). The only way to receive assistance through TEDP is if the tenant continues to reside in the unit listed on the application; once a household has vacated the unit, assistance will NOT be provided to landlords. Learn more about TEDP at https://texasrentrelief.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/TRR-Eviction-Diversion-Program.pdf.
