The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) announced that it has distributed more than $100 million in rental and utility assistance to Texans.
Renters, according to the TDHCA, will get assistance with up to 12 months of rent, including back rent and up to three months of future rent alongside utility assistance.
With eviction moratoriums expiring across the state, the Texas Rent Relief Program (TRR) says it ‘s “prioritizing applications for tenants whose landlords have filed for eviction in an effort to keep Texans in their homes.”
Landlords can receive up to 15 months of paid rent through this program, said TRR, but only if they don’t evict.
