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

TDHCA Press Room

Neighborhood resources at your fingertips

The staff of your state housing agency stays pretty busy.

TDHCA last year alone helped 1,281 households meet their monthly rent payments; assisted 3,454 households in becoming homeowners through homebuyer financing and down payment assistance; and provided financing for the construction or preservation of 9,067 units of affordable rental housing. The net result for Texas being stronger, more stable communities.

But it takes public input from folks just like you to help shape the programs that make this all happen. How does the average person possibly interested in affordable housing stay on top of everything?

There’s an easy answer to that question, and its right at your fingertips.

TDHCA’s Community Information page is an online resource dedicated to helping keep Texans and their neighbors informed on the Department and its activities.

The page explains how you can receive notifications regarding the submission and status of applications from developers seeking financing for the construction or preservation of properties proposed within a specific ZIP code.

Visitors can determine if their neighborhood qualifies to provide input for Quantifiable Community Participation (“QCP”), an important scoring criterion established by the Texas Legislature.

The Community Information page also provides details regarding how you and your neighbors can attend a public hearing or a meeting of the TDHCA Governing Board to provide public comment.

Visitors can even find information outlining TDHCA’s procedures for taking public comment and download a Public Comment Form.

And don’t forget to frequently check the Department’s online calendar. It’s another easy way to follow what’s going on at your state housing agency.
