TDHCA puts 2009 program rules out for public comment

Knowing that input from advocates and concerned members of the public is essential to the development of programs that are both responsive and effective, TDHCA has scheduled a series of six public hearings to accept comment on a wide ranging set of program rules and policy documents.

The hearings will run September 22 through October 3, 2008, and are scheduled for Austin, Brownsville, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston and Lubbock.

A partial list of items for which TDHCA will accept comment includes rules for the Housing Tax Credit, Multifamily Bond, First Time Homebuyer, HOME, Housing Trust Fund, Community Services Block Grant, Weatherization Assistance, and Comprehensive Energy Assistance programs.

The comment period for all rules and policy documents runs September 19 through October 20, 2008.
