Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs - Building Homes and Strengthening Communities

Housing Stability Services (HSS) Program

The HSS Program provides assistance to local communities and non-profits to assist income eligible households to help them maintain or obtain stable housing. The program is funded by Treasury through the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA1 and ERA2).

Texas Access to Justice Foundation – Legal Aid and Eviction Help

The HSS Program funds the Texas Access to Justice Foundation (TAJF) in partnership with 10 organizations statewide to provide counsel to accompany low-income households to their eviction proceedings, provide mediation services between tenants and landlords, and provide local in-person and online housing clinics to assist low-income households. The TAJF Program is funded through March 31, 2024.

*For HSS Subrecipients funded to provide legal aid outside of the TAJF Program, please ensure households do not receive a duplication of benefits from multiple organizations.
