Housing and Economic Assistance to Rebuild Texas (HEART) Program

The HEART program, created by the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation (TSAHC) and Enterprise Community Partners, provides grants of up to $50,000 and technical assistance to nonprofits providing housing assistance to families displaced or otherwise affected by Hurricane Harvey. The HEART Program is funded through a generous grant from the Rebuild Texas Fund.*

Grants are available in two categories. Organizations may apply for both categories, but award amounts are capped at $50,000 per organization.

  • Housing Repairs such as mold remediation, roof repairs, replacing broken windows and doors, repairing electrical systems, and fixing cracked pipes and foundation issues caused by flooding.
  • Programming such as case management and supportive housing services; financial counseling; donation centers; long-term planning efforts inclusive of resilient and green building practices.

Application Process

The HEART application is a two-step process consisting of a preliminary proposal and a full proposal. Applicants should follow these four steps:

Step 1: Review the Program Guidelines and FAQ.
Step 2: Take the online eligibility quiz.
Step 3: Review the recorded HEART Program webinar, which took place on May 11th.
Step 4: Complete the preliminary proposal. Applicants who pass the preliminary proposal round will receive a formal invitation to submit a full proposal.

Note: Due to an overwhelming number of preliminary proposals submitted, TSAHC and Enterprise Community Partners are temporarily suspending the acceptance of new preliminary proposals to the HEART program.  We expect to resume accepting preliminary proposals later this summer.
