Texas Rent Relief Program

Beginning February 15th, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) is launching the Texas Rent Relief Program — the first statewide rent and utility assistance program for qualifying households throughout Texas. For applicants in San Antonio to qualify, households must be at or below 80% of the Bexar County median income and meet other criteria. Per federal guidelines, TDHCA will prioritize applications for households at or below 50% of the Bexar County median income level and households where one or more members are currently unemployed and have been for at least 90 days. Landlords are also encouraged to apply on behalf of tenants, who must co-sign the application.

To make application call 1-833-989-7368 or submit your application online at TexasRentRelief.com. The call center will be open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
