TDHCA will manage Homeowner Assistance Fund

In an effort to ease financial hardships due to COVID-19, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) will administer approximately $842 million under the Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF). Established through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, HAF will provide assistance to eligible homeowners to help avoid mortgage delinquencies, defaults, and foreclosures. TDHCA is actively working to make these funds available as rapidly as possible.

More information will be posted in the coming weeks, so be sure to join TDHCA’s email list to read the latest updates about HAF and to learn when the application portal opens. When subscribing, choose the Pandemic Related Mortgage Payment Assistance box to receive timely updates regarding HAF.

Texas Rent Relief Update

Rent and utility bill assistance is still available through the Texas Rent Relief Program, and TDHCA encourages eligible households to apply. If you have questions or need assistance with your application, please contact us toll-free at 833-9TX-RENT (833-989-7368) Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., or email us at info@texasrentrelief.com.

TDHCA strongly urges landlords to postpone pursuing evictions at this time, as we are fast-tracking applications submitted for the Texas Eviction Diversion Program (TEDP). Learn more about TEDP at https://texasrentrelief.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/TRR-Eviction-Diversion-Program.pdf.
