Texas Rent Relief Update: Applications Now Under Review

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:

  • Respond to email or phone call contacts from TRR analysts requesting missing required information or documents,
  • Log into your account and be sure contact information is completed and correct,
  • Hit the “Submit” button to officially get an application started for review (even if you believe you submitted in the prior application system), and
  • Check email spam or junk folders in case an email about your application may have landed there.

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

Funds are still available, and TDHCA encourages eligible households to apply.
