The Texas Rent Relief Program has helped over 60,000 people who've struggled to keep a roof over their heads in this struggling economy. The last time they opened up the application process, it was overwhelmed with requests and had to be closed within a few days. Now the Texas Department of Housing and Community says Texans will get another chance to apply for the Texas Rent Relief Program.

Texans will be able to apply now through Tuesday, March 28 at 11:59 PM Central time. Keep in mind this is for Texans who are applying for rent assistance for the first time.

The Texas Rent Relief Program has provided over 2 billion in emergency funds to help Texas renters pay rent and utilities including past-due utilities as well. Texas continues to surprise me with this generosity.

WHERE CAN I GO TO APPLY FOR THE TEXAS RENT RELIEF PROGRAM?

Texans eligible for the assistance can apply online at texasrentrelief.com or over the phone by calling the Texas Rent Relief  Program call center at 883-989-7368.

I suggest if you were not able to take advantage of the Texas Rent Relief Program first go around and you are in true need of assistance, by all means apply today.

You can find the application here, and remember - here in Texas, we take care of each other. We are Texas strong!
