Looking for affordable housing? Look no further


WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 27, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — TDHCA has helped finance the development of more than 2,000 affordable rental properties providing safe, decent housing to income eligible individuals, families and seniors across the state.

If it weren’t for these rental properties, many of Texas households would have severely limited choices regarding where they live.

In addition to a lowered rent, most properties funded by the Department also provide supportive services designed to foster self-sufficiency among young families or promote a healthy environment for older tenants.

That’s all fine and dandy, but how do you find these developments?

The easiest way is to visit the Help for Texans tab on the Department’s main Web page. Help for Texans is a quick, three-step interactive Web tool that can point you toward TDHCA-financed rental units in your community.

Visit the Vacancy Clearinghouse, enter either the city or county, and click the “Search” button. Search results will display below.  You’ll find the Vacancy Clearinghouse and other assistance on Help for Texans.

If you’re interested in developments specifically serving either seniors or families, or those serving as transitional housing, you have the option to select just these types of properties.

Whichever you choose, the Clearinghouse tool will generate a list providing all the properties financed by TDHCA in the community selected, as well as the bedroom breakdown of each, the number of accessible units, a link to a map showing its location, and the phone number to the leasing office.

So, if you’re looking for an affordable place to live, look no further than Help for Texans. We’ve got you covered.
