Speak up! Draft Housing Plan comment period open

TDHCA wants you to become familiar with a genuine VIP: Very Important Publication.

We refer, of course, to the Draft 2015 State Low Income Housing Plan and Annual Report ("SLIHP"), one of the most important policy and planning documents your state housing agency produces each year.

But TDHCA would like your help. The Department is seeking comment from housing advocates and the general public regarding this year's draft SLIHP.

But don't wait too much longer: The public comment period won't last forever.

The SLIHP reports on the administration, funding levels, performance measures, and the distribution of TDHCA's resources from the previous fiscal year.

It also provides readers with a comprehensive overview of Texas' housing needs, and a resource allocation plan to meet those needs.

TDHCA strives to include the public in policy, program, and resource allocation decisions to the extent that it can. To meet this goal, all Texans are encouraged to submit input toward the Draft 2015 SLIHP during the comment period which runs Friday, December 19, through 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 21, 2015.

Interested parties may submit written comment by mail to: Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, Elizabeth Yevich, P.O. Box 13941, Austin, Texas 78711-3941; by e-mail to Elizabeth.Yevich@tdhca.state.tx.us; or by fax to (512) 475-0070.

So what are you waiting for? Speak up!
