Find Affordable Housing

There are several different affordable rental housing programs.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development  (HUD) funds:

  1. Public Housing, which is owned and operated by Public Housing Authorities

  2. Project-based Section 8 and other subsidies directly at apartment complexes

  3. Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

You can search for a Public Housing Authority at this link:  http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/public_indian_housing/pha/contacts/tx

You can search for a HUD-assisted apartment complex at this link:  http://www.hud.gov/apps/section8/index.cfm

You can find open Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Waiting Lists at this link: http://affordablehousingonline.com/open-section-8-waiting-lists

There are also apartment complexes with somewhat affordable rents through the Tax Credit Program. Tax credit landlords are not allowed to discriminate against Section 8 voucher holders.  You can find tax credit properties at this link: http://hrc-ic.tdhca.state.tx.us/hrc/VacancyClearinghouseSearch.m
