Local Governments

TDHCA has developed an easy-to-understand and simple-to-use TDHCA Housing Options for Texas Communities Brochure (PDF) to serve as a resource for local officials moving through the affordable multifamily housing evaluation process.

Communities & Neighborhoods

To determine if your neighborhood organization is a qualified Neighborhood Organization for purposes of providing input for Quantifiable Community Participation and for information about how to provide input, download the 2023 QCP Neighborhood Information Packet (DOCX).

Additional information about affordable housing and its potential impact on their neighborhoods is available on the Resource for Neighborhoods page.

Public Comment Resources

Every TDHCA program follows the citizen participation and public hearing requirements as outlined in the Texas Government Code and applicable federal laws. Participation and comments are encouraged and can be submitted either at a public hearing or in writing via letters, faxes, email (info@tdhca.state.tx.us), and in some cases directly on the TDHCA web site.

Please visit TDHCA’s Public Comment Center for general explanatory public comment information, forms, and other resources to assist with participation in the Department’s public comment process.
