Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) have extended the submission deadline for housing tax credit applications. The original deadline of March 1st has been pushed to Monday, March 8th at 5:00 PM CT to allow extra time for housing developers to secure documentation or other communications needed while people were out of service.
Due to severe winter weather and power outages in the general Austin area, a limited number of TDHCA Department staff are working today (Tuesday, Feb. 16). Responses to phone calls and email may be delayed as a result.
Governor Abbott released his Budget for 2022-2023 and his priorities for this session.
