Application Portal Is Now Closed
Due to the total requests for assistance now exceeding all Texas Rent Relief funds available, the program has closed its application portal to new applications and additional funding requests.
For Those Who Started Applications
Submitting an application does not guarantee payment. Applicants who started an application prior to the deadline of Friday, Nov. 5, at 5:00 pm Central Time will have 21 days to complete it. The program will attempt to contact the applicant 3 times over the course of the 21 days, but if the applicant does not submit during this time period their application will be deemed inactive and they will no longer be able to submit an application.
For Those Who Previously Submitted Applications
Submitted applications currently being reviewed will continue to be processed until all program funds run out. With the funding left, we anticipate to continue to disburse assistance over the next three months to submitted applications already in the queue.
Alternative Assistance Options
Over 30 Texas cities and counties also received emergency rent and utility assistance funding from the Treasury, and as of November 2021, many of these programs are still accepting applications and are ready to assist. Use this Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) search tool to see if they serve your area: CFPB search tool.
For alternative assistance options, visit the Help for Texans webpage or call 2-1-1 Texas for information on organizations that are helping Texans with emergency rent and utility assistance. You may also reach out to your local public housing authority(ies) or city or county to know what other assistance is available.
We are currently not accepting new applications or additional funding requests, but may do so in the future if more funds are made available.
If additional funding becomes available at a later date, submitted applications will remain on file and will be reviewed in the order they were received and according to application review priorities.
