TDHCA's mission is to help Texans achieve an improved quality of life through the development of better communities.
The Department accomplishes this mission by acting as a conduit for federal grant funds for housing and community services. However, because several major housing programs require the participation of private investors and private lenders, TDHCA also operates as a housing finance agency.
Ensuring program compliance with the many state and federal laws that govern housing programs is another important part of the Department's mission. This ensures the health and safety of TDHCA's housing portfolio and guarantees state and federal resources are expended in an efficient and effective manner.
TDHCA also serves as a financial and administrative resource that helps provide essential services and affordable housing opportunities to Texans who qualify for this assistance based on their income level. Additionally, the Department is a resource for educational materials and technical assistance for housing, housing related, and community services matters.

Created in 1989 to coordinate the State's homeless resources and services, the Texas Interagency Council for the Homeless (TICH) consists of representatives from all state agencies that serve persons experiencing homelessness. TICH serves as an advisory committee to TDHCA. The council receives no funding and has no full-time staff, but receives clerical and advisory support from TDHCA. Furthermore, TDHCA supports the Council by hosting TICH Web pages.
