Welcome to our website. Texas Housing Association is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the education and information needs of the 400+ public housing authorities/agencies (PHAs) in Texas. Our members are agencies that administer the Low Rent Public Housing Program and the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. We invite all Vendors doing business with or wishing to do business with Texas housing agencies to become Associate Members.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE HOUSING OR TAKE APPLICATIONS. In Texas you must apply directly with the housing authority in the town in which you wish to live. For a directory of agencies in Texas, click here.
The 2017 THA Scholarship Application is now available for download. This year THA will be awarding four $4000 scholarships to graduating senior children of PHA employees. Executive Directors, please don’t forget to distribute this to your staff. Deadline will be March 15, 2017. We have a Word version and a pdf fillable version this year.
SAM SCAMS are still out there! “The System for Award Management (SAM) is the official U.S. Government system that consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA, and EPLS. There is NO fee to register for this site (or update). Entities may register at no cost directly from this page (home page). User guides and webinars are available under the Help tab.”
ATTENTION FAMILIES LOOKING FOR SECTION 8 VOUCHER ASSISTANCE: Watch out for SCAMS! Reportedly, there are Internet Sites claiming to be application sites for voucher assistance. They are taking fees and personal information from people claiming to put them on waiting lists. These are BOGUS! The only way you can apply for voucher assistance is directly through a local housing authority. Click here to find the applicable housing authority Texas.
