TDHCA celebrates National Mobility Awareness Month

TDHCA encourages all Texans to join us in celebrating National Mobility Awareness Month in May. It is our goal to enable individuals, particularly low-income families and persons with disabilities, the opportunity to live in their homes by making their homes more accessible and thus improving their quality of life.

TDHCA’s housing programs play a crucial role in addressing our state’s housing needs and help fill the funding gaps to make needed modifications and home rehabilitation possible for many individuals. For example, TDHCA helped make 69 renter- and owner-occupied homes accessible for persons with disabilities through the Amy Young Barrier Removal Program in 2018, providing one-time grants of up to $20,000 to aid in the construction of roll-in showers, widening doorways, building ramps and improving walkways.

Through an array of housing programs and services, TDHCA assisted more than 600,000 extremely low- to moderate-income families and individuals in Fiscal Year 2018 (pg. 60, 2019 State of Texas Low Income Housing Plan and Annual Report). TDHCA’s website offers additional information about all our programs, as well as a step-by-step online database (Help For Texans) with contact information for housing and housing-related programs funded or operated by TDHCA and other housing service providers. To find assistance, select the type of assistance needed from this site, enter your city or county and select ‘Find Help.’ Then, contact the organizations in the area directly for an application and other information about the programs offered.

For additional assistance, TDHCA offers the Housing Resource Information Helpline at (800) 525-0657 or via email info@tdhca.state.tx.us.
