HOME-ARP National Housing Trust Fund Set-Aside

The Department programmed $56,511,887 of its HOME American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) funding into affordable rental housing. Within the rental housing activity is a $10,000,000 set-aside for direct awards to qualifying National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) Developments. This set-aside was created to preserve existing Department investments in NHTF-funded developments from 2020 and 2021 that may otherwise be at risk of being not financially feasible. The Department has sent notices of eligibility to qualifying NHTF Applicants, and closed the set-aside on December 31, 2022. More details of HOME-ARP are available online at https://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/home-arp/index.htm.
