Assistance for Texas homeowners is on the way!

The Texas Homeowners Assistance Fund Program (TXHAF) provides financial assistance to qualified Texas homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgage and related expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

TXHAF is administered by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) with funding provided by the Homeowner Assistance Fund under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.  

TXHAF will provide eligible homeowners with grants to pay past due mortgage payments and property taxes, insurance, and HOA fees.
