TDHCA and state partners provide mortgage relief for Texas homeowners

As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, TDHCA continues to help vulnerable Texans with housing stability, and is now working with 48 statewide partners to administer nearly $25.5 million in mortgage assistance.

Homeowners can search for a Texas Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program (TEMAP) area administrator by visiting TDHCA’s Help for Texans webpage at https://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/texans.htm. When viewing the page, scroll down to view the Emergency Mortgage Assistance box in the right-hand column. A downloadable spreadsheet is available via the link TEMAP Service Providers Contact Information (Smartsheet.com), and provides the contact information for mortgage assistance providers serving specific Texas counties.

Assistance may be provided to homeowners at or below 80% of the Area Medium Income who have been economically impacted by COVID-19 to help provide housing stability during the pandemic. The program can pay up to six months of an eligible homeowner’s mortgage, including payments in arrears, with at least one of those months covering a future month.

In June 2020, Governor Abbott designated TDHCA as the state agency to administer more than $141 million in CDBG CARES Act funding, which includes the $25.5 million for TEMAP.
