All payments will be made directly to the landlord and/or utility provider unless they do not agree to accept the payment. If they do not accept payment, the payment will be made directly to the tenant after 14 days of outreach to the landlord and/or utility provider to confirm their refusal.
For all applications received by March 8, TDHCA will first review and commit funds to applicants who meet one of the two priority groups below:
Have incomes at or below 50% Area Median Income, OR
Households where one or more household members are unemployed as of the date you apply for assistance, AND one or more household members (this can be the same household member) were unemployed for 90 days prior to the date you apply for assistance.
A portion of the funds have been set aside specifically for households whose landlords have already sued for eviction in their local court. The application process is the same, and only households in this situation can receive this funding.
