Texas Rent Relief Runs Out of Funds 

Texas Rent Relief stopped receiving new applications after more than 100,000 applications came in after the first 28 hours of opening the portal. A $96 million budget is projected for Texan renters, but only 10% of the population can benefit.

Due to demand, Texas Rent Relief forced the closure of applications 52 hours after the opening, a very early shutting of applications compared to the expected deadline.

According to Kristina Tirloni with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, special applications were submitted, but minimal funding is available. The Texas Rent Relief cannot assist everyone.

Texas Rent Relief Priorities and The People’s Frustration

If you are a Texan citizen and currently facing an eviction, you are the priority of the Texas Rent Relief program. There is $96 million left in its budget, intended for the Texan citizens who are severely affected by the pandemic. This amount can help 316,000 households.

Even though the Texas Rent Relief is doing its best in serving the people of Texas, some citizens have expressed their frustrations with the program. Many applications were denied and this contributes to the frustration of the people.

Many Texan citizens will soon receive their notice of eviction but their application was denied by the Texas Rent Relief due to the incomplete documentations presented. Sadly, there will be more than a hundred Texans who will soon face the same rejections.
