What Fair Housing looks like in Texas

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (“TDHCA”) is committed to expanding fair housing choice and opportunities in the State of Texas. We show that commitment by investing in local affordable housing developments.

TDHCA-supported properties exemplify the type of high quality homes that help Texas households and communities to thrive. Located throughout the state, these single family and multifamily homes follow strict federal, state and local guidelines, including the implementation of the rules set forth in the National and Texas Fair Housing Acts. The Fair Housing Act protects renters and homebuyers from discrimination. For example:

  • Everyone is entitled to the opportunity to have equal terms and conditions as others in the same situation; and
  • Everyone has the right to rent an apartment, buy a home, or purchase homeowners’ insurance free from discrimination.

For a more complete understanding of Fair Housing rules and regulations, individuals can visit our Fair Housing for Renters and Fair Housing for Homebuyers pages.

For those in need of affordable housing options, a searchable list of our monitored rental properties can be found by visiting Help for Texans web page or the Vacancy Clearinghouse.
