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

TDHCA Press Room

Want to get involved? Here’s how

Between planning roundtables, public hearings, Governing Board meetings, training webinars and the like, there is always something happening at TDHCA.

If you’re an advocate, local official or an active member of your neighborhood, how do you get involved in what’s going on?

TDHCA encourages you to visit its Community Information page, a valuable resource dedicated to keeping Texans informed while promoting a two-way flow of communication between the Department and local communities.

The page offers details on how to receive notifications regarding the submission and status of pre-applications and applications for housing tax credits for proposed rental housing properties to be developed within a specific zip code.

Visitors to the web page can find out if their neighborhood is qualified to provide input for Quantifiable Community Participation, an important scoring factor in the Housing Tax Credit Program, as well as notifications regarding any public hearings the Department has scheduled locally.

There’s also a link to TDHCA’s Public Comment Center, where visitors can learn which program rules and policy documents the Department is currently accepting comment from the public, as well as several links to other helpful resources.

So visit the Community Information page often and get involved!
