Apply for Funds

General Information

The Division of Multifamily Finance administers Competitive (9%) Housing Tax Credits, Non-Competitive (4%) Housing Tax Credits, Multifamily Mortgage Revenue Bonds, and Multifamily Direct Loans to assist in the development, preservation, and financing of affordable multifamily properties.

Multifamily Uniform Application

One Uniform Multifamily Application is used to review and approve requests for funds (with the exception of Special Initiatives). An applicant requesting Housing Tax Credits, Multifamily Bonds issued by TDHCA, or Multifamily Direct Loans must complete Uniform Multifamily Application and any supplemental, program-specific forms listed by Program area below. Applicants are encouraged to review program-specific manuals and the Rules that govern the program under which they are applying as they complete the Application. Prior year application materials or documents can be found on the Archive page. Additional program-related guidance can be found on the individual Program and FAQ pages.

Application Submission Calendar

All applicants are required to set up an online account in order to submit an application. The Electronic Filing Agreement can be found under the Supporting Information section below, along with specific instructions on how to set up the account.

The Competitive 9% HTC program has a prescribed program calendar regarding application submission and other important program deadlines and can be found in the QAP.

The Non-competitive 4% HTC program allows for the submission of applications on a monthly basis throughout the calendar year. With the exception of successful Lottery applicants, a Certificate of Reservation from the Texas Bond Review Board of Private Activity Bond volume cap is required before an application can be submitted. Applicants are encouraged to review the QAP to better understand the submission requirements.

The Multifamily Bond program, where the Department is serving as the bond Issuer, requires submission of a pre-application based on submission dates throughout the calendar year.
