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

Details on economic recovery package now available

Seeking to help bring the many details of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 rapidly into focus for stakeholders and the general public, TDHCA has launched a new section on its Web site dedicated to this federal initiative. ARRA is designed to foster economic recovery and protect the needy.

This Web area provides a brief overview of those new ARRA programs TDHCA would implement if the State of Texas accepts them, including home weatherization activities, homelessness prevention and the rapid re-housing of homeless persons, new programs proposals for financing the development of affordable rental housing, and expanded resources for the state’s community action network.

Please visit this new page for a helpful summary of the Department’s ARRA activities. Visitors are encouraged to check back often as specific details emerge.
