Statement on Inclusive Communities Project, Inc v. Texas Department Housing and Community Affairs

August 29, 2016

We are pleased that the District Court has dismissed this long-standing case, thereby acknowledging that TDHCA's policies and rules do not create a racially discriminatory impact. As we have steadfastly maintained, TDHCA has sought to administer a tax credit program that carries out fair housing-compliant policies to develop affordable housing options for Texans through leveraging federal tax incentives that attract private investment. As the program continues to evolve, we intend to approach the development of policy with sensitivity to changing community needs, extensive public input, and the desire to provide choice and opportunity in a fair housing-compliant and non-discriminatory manner.

TDHCA Executive Director
