With the economy slamming Americans, Texas is stepping in to support its residents by offering rent relief for a limited time. The Texas Rent Relief Program, which started in 2021, appropriated $2.1 billion to help Texans pay rent and utilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This included past due balances.

Today they are accepting new applications through March 28, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. CT. According to their website, the program has $96M remaining to help Texans affected by the pandemic, and are accepting past applicants and new users to apply. If your residence is privately owned, your landlord also needs to fill some information out. The site also provides Eviction Prevention Resources and updates for over 30 Texas Cities and Counties.


Tenants who are unable to access their existing online application may call the call center for assistance, and documentation related to existing applications may be accepted by postal mail at the following address.
