2015 DRAFT Regional Allocation Formula Methodology

Texas Government Code, §2306.111(d) and §2306.1115 requires that TDHCA use a Regional Allocation Formula ("RAF") to allocate funding for its HOME, Housing Tax Credit, and Housing Trust Fund programs. The RAF uses appropriate statistical data to measure affordable housing needs and available resources in 13 State Service Regions used for planning purposes. The RAF is revised annually to reflect current data, respond to public comment, and better assess regional housing needs and available resources.

The Draft 2015 RAF Methodology is available for official public comment from August 15, 2014, through September 15, 2014, at 6:00pm Central Time. A public hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 9, 2014, 2:00 p.m. Central at the Stephen F. Austin Building, Room 170, 1700 North Congress Avenue, Austin, TX 78701. The draft methodology and sample RAF amounts are found below:
