Texas Rent Relief Program (TDHCA)

The Texas Rent Relief program was created by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) to provide Texas tenants with financial assistance for rent and utility bills (including past due rent and utilities). TDHCA began accepting applications from landlords and tenants on February 15, 2021.

Due to requests for assistance exceeding available funds, the Texas Rent Relief Program closed its portal to new applicants and additional funding requests on November 5, 2021. Applications submitted before November 5, 2021 will continue to be processed until all program funds run out.

Note The Texas Rent Relief Program has announced limited additional funding for rent and utility relief. At this time, they are not accepting new applications but will continue to process applications already on file. If you have a pending application, you may be contacted soon via email or phone for a status update.

To contact the Texas Rent Relief program, please call 1-833-9TX-RENT (1-833-989-7368).
