Rent Relief Portal Closes

The Texas Rent Relief Program (TRRP) application portal closed at noon on March 16, 2023.  More than 70,000 applications were submitted within the first 24 hours after the portal reopened earlier in the week.

According to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, it has about $96 m. in funds that are available and applications that include a valid eviction docket number will be prioritized.

It is possible the agency may receive additional funds in the future.

The TRRP has distributed more than $2.1 billion rent and utility relief funds to more than 316,000 households since the program launched in February 2021.
