Please see the below resources if you have been affected or displaced by Hurricane Harvey. 

 

If You Want to Stay Informed

If You Need General Assistance

Visit www.disasterassistance.gov, and complete an anonymous questionnaire to get the most accurate, personalized list of possible assistance.

If You Need Temporary Shelter

If you’ve been displaced by Hurricane Harvey and need temporary shelter, visit the Red Cross Shelter Finder or call 866-438-4636 to find the closest open shelter.

If You Need Temporary Rental Housing

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) maintains a vacancy clearinghouse web page that allows individuals to search for affordable apartments that are currently available. TDHCA has asked apartment owners and operators to keep their vacancy listings accurate and updated post-Hurricane Harvey.

If You’re a Homeowner

Homeowners impacted by Hurricane Harvey may qualify for forbearance, a temporary suspension or reduction of their mortgage payment.  Read Freddie Mac’s disaster relief policies or Fannie Mae’s statement on assistance for Hurricane Harvey homeowners for more details. You can also visit HUD’s web site for information on their disaster assistance for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

If You're an Owner or Operator of a Multifamily Development with Exempt Bond Financing Provided by TSAHC

There are two Revenue Procedures (2014-49 and 2014-50) that apply to developments financed with exempt bonds when the President has declared a Major Disaster. These Revenue Procedures provide temporary relief from certain requirements as well as emergency housing for displaced individuals.

After you review the Revenue Procedures carefully, please fill out this form to notify us that you intend to adhere to the Revenue Procedures by offering emergency housing to displaced individuals. Upon receipt of your notification, TSAHC will provide you with our approval in writing. Please note that for developments with tax credit financing, you should have received separate instruction from TDHCA.
