The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a two-part webinar on July 14, 2022, on the HOME American Rescue Program (HOME-ARP).

The webinars will provide an overview of TDHCA’s approved HOME-ARP Allocation Plan activities and HOME-ARP rental guidance. Part 1 of the webinar will consist of an overview of HOME-ARP including how funds have been programmed, qualifying populations, referral methods, preferences, and nonprofit capacity building/operating assistance. Part 2 of the webinar will consist of an overview of the rental guidance that TDHCA has developed, which will be used for rental applications under the HOME-ARP National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) set-aside and rental applications responding to the upcoming Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). The rental guidance topics covered will include financial layering, rent levels, and reserves. Interested parties may access the Allocation Plan at https://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/HARP.htm. Registration for the webinar is available below.

The HOME-ARP NHTF set-aside is for 2020/2021 NHTF awardees/applicants that may otherwise be at risk of not being completed. Eligibility notices for the HOME-ARP NHTF set-aside are now anticipated to be sent later this month. The Rental Development NOFA is anticipated to be released late this summer.
