Affordable Housing Partnership

The Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation (TSAHC) and Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) have established the Affordable Housing Partnership (AHP) in order to administer a pilot program providing no interest forgivable loans to build or rehabilitate affordable, accessible and integrated housing units for persons with disabilities at eligible projects located in Dallas and Travis Counties. Housing created through this program will be reserved for qualified individuals receiving or eligible for Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS). 

The pilot program will be administered through TSAHC’s Texas Housing Impact Fund (THIF), which offers financing for the development, acquisition, or rehabilitation of affordable housing across Texas.
