The Department is preparing to release more than $10 million dollars into its HOME Single Family Program Reservation System on February 17, 2016.The Department had envisioned in its 2015 HOME Single Family Programs Reservation System ("Reservation") Notice of Funding Availability ("NOFA") that it would release funds on December 18, 2015, and January 29, 2016. However, in order to ensure that all applications that had been submitted for a Reservation System Participant (“RSP”) Agreement could be processed prior to the funds being made available, the releases are being combined into a single release set for Wednesday, February 17, 2016 as follows.

TDHCA reviews requests accepted by Housing Contract System (“HCS”) in the order they are received. It is possible that in the event that several transactions are submitted simultaneously, the HCS may accept more requests than there is funding available. Administrators will be notified as soon as possible if any activity cannot be processed due to insufficient funds or other programmatic issues if this does occur.

The Department regrets the delays in the releases of funding, however to promote fairness and transparency in our Program, the Department is committed to ensuring that RSP Agreements are in place to the extent possible.

We value and appreciate your input into our HOME Single Family activities. If you have questions, please send an email to the HOME Division at home@tdhca.state.tx.us or contact Jaclyn Pryll at jaclyn.pryll@tdhca.state.tx.us.
