Announcements & Forums

Recent Division and Department Announcements will be posted below. The Multifamily Finance Division now hosts forums to help answer application questions and concerns during the application process. Forums are posted by topic.



The Application Acceptance Period for the 2018 Competitive Housing Tax Credit ("HTC") Cycle is now open. The Pre-Application Final Delivery Date is Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, at 5 p.m. Austin local time. Pre-Application fees must be received by this same deadline.

To begin the Pre-Application, visit: https://form.jotform.com/72783791419166. Once opened, the link will require the Applicant to enter the primary contact person's email address and the name of the Development - please do not use spaces when entering the Development name. This information will be used to create a unique URL to access the Pre-Application.

The 9% HTC Pre-Application is not mandatory; however, Applicants that provide a Pre-Application are eligible for six (6) points in the full Application (assuming all applicable requirements are met), and Applicants that do not provide a Pre-Application will not be eligible for those points.

Information about how to complete the Pre-Application and how to submit Pre-Application fees is included in the 2018 Multifamily Programs Procedures Manual, which is posted with other documents related to the 2018 HTC Application Cycle on the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs' ("TDHCA") website at: http://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/multifamily/apply-for-funds.htm.

Questions about the 9% HTC Pre-Application or any of the posted documents should be sent to TDHCA Competitive HTC Program Administrator Sharon Gamble at sharon.gamble@tdhca.state.tx.us.
