TDHCA awarded nearly $400,000 in new HUD vouchers

Just announced (hud.gov), TDHCA is one of 14 housing authorities in Texas to receive nearly $5 million in housing vouchers from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help more persons with disabilities obtain permanent affordable housing. The announcement comes as HUD releases $99 million for the Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program, of which TDHCA will receive approximately $396,000 to provide 50 vouchers to eligible applicants across the state.

Under HUD's Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program, TDHCA will use the new vouchers to help serve non-elderly persons with disabilities transition from an institutional care facility to permanent housing within their communities. The new Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program will allow TDHCA to assist households currently on the Project Access Program wait list.

The Project Access Program is used to assist low-income persons with disabilities in transitioning from institutions into the community, and is operated in collaboration with Texas Health and Human Services via the Money Follows the Person Program.

Find out more about Project Access, and for questions about the new vouchers please contact TDHCA’s Section 8 department at 800-237-6500.
