Training for success

Did you know TDHCA provides training on many of our programs, including guidance on the rules and regulations that explain how funding is to be used? Whether it’s localized training with community nonprofits embedded within cities or counties or professionals working within the affordable housing industry, TDHCA staff can be an essential source of information and help to navigate the complexities of the state and federal programs of which TDHCA oversees.

Knowledge is definitely power! TDHCA training staff not only bring real-world experience—many having worked in the same industries in which they now train—they also provide necessary touchpoints to help make our stakeholders successful when working with the public.


Compliance staff provide sessions on Income Determinations, Uniform Physical Condition Standards inspections, the Housing Tax Credit Program (HTC), the Multifamily Direct Loan Program, and HUD’s 811 program. The training sessions teach program regulations, and help ensure compliance when implementing Department funded programs. Most training is coordinated through the Texas Apartment Association. Visit www.taa.org to see upcoming offerings.

Community Affairs

The Community Affairs staff is committed to providing quality information, guidance, training and technical assistance to the members of the Community Affairs' Subrecipient network. Subrecipients who are implementing a Community Affairs (CA) program can request program assistance to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (the Department) by completing the Request for CA Program Assistance form.

Program Services

Program Services staff offer training on Environmental Review and Clearance, Davis-Bacon labor standards, Uniform Relocation Act, and HUD Section 3 – Economic Opportunities for Low-Income Persons topics. Information related to the sessions can be found on the Program Services Training page.
