Homeless Housing and Services Program (HHSP)

HHSP was established during the 81st Texas Legislature through an appropriations rider and codified during the 82nd Texas Legislature.

Through HHSP, the state provides funding to the nine largest cities in support of services to homeless individuals and families. Cities currently served through HHSP include Arlington, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Plano and San Antonio.

Allowable activities include construction, development, or procurement of housing for homeless persons; rehabilitation of structures targeted to serving homeless persons or persons at-risk of homelessness; provision of direct services and case management to homeless persons or persons at-risk of homelessness; or other homelessness-related activity as approved by the Department.
