The Texas Rent Relief Program is here to help. COVID-19 has affected Texans across the state. We have emergency funds available to help Texas renters pay rent and utility bills (including past due rent and utilities). The online and phone system opens for applications from landlords and tenants on February 15, 2021 at 8 a.m. Central Time.
Both landlords and tenants can use this website to create an account and submit their application. If you need assistance completing an application, our customer service staff can complete the application with you by phone by calling 1-833-9TX-RENT (1-833-989-7368).
For all applications received by Feb. 28, TDHCA will first review and commit funds to applicants who meet one of the two priority groups: 1) Have incomes at or below 50% Area Median Income, OR, 2) Households where one or more household members are unemployed as of the date you apply for assistance, AND one or more household members (this can be the same household member) were unemployed for 90 days prior to the date you apply for assistance.
