Deadline to Apply for Texas Rent Relief Program Closes Friday, November 5th
November 4, 2021
The application portal for the Texas Rent Relief Program is slated to close on Friday, November 5th, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Texas Rent Relief is a program administered by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) that provides financial assistance with rent and utilities for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
An announcement posted on the program's website states that the program will no longer accept new and additional assistance requests after this date as the total requests for assistance exceed the number of funds available. Any applications still pending in the system will be processed until the program funds are depleted, and anyone who still wishes to submit an application must do so before Friday, November 5th at 5:00 p.m.
To contact the Texas Rent Relief program, please call 1-833-9TX-RENT (1-833-989-7368).

National Family Caregivers Month
November 19, 2021
November is National Family Caregivers Month! We frequently hear from Texans who are looking for information on caregiving for an elderly or disabled person. These people can be in many different roles: family members caring for a relative, attorneys drafting legal documents that outline crucial medical and financial decisions for elderly clients, or seniors interested in planning for their future. Whatever your role may be, we likely have a resource in our library that can help you understand the road ahead.
