More Housing Vouchers Are Coming to Texas. Will Landlords Accept Them?



ABILENE, TX – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is pumping money into the effort to reduce homelessness across the country. The department announced this week it was allocating $5 billion in American Rescue Plan funds for emergency housing vouchers to be dispersed nationwide.

Through the voucher program, HUD is sending out 70,000 housing choice vouchers for homeless individuals and families or those at risk of becoming homeless. Dallas will receive about 1,100.

In a press release, Mayor Eric Johnson thanked President Joe Biden’s administration for “this much-needed assistance that will make our city stronger.”
