Housing and Community Development








The City of Houston maintains an aggressive campaign to improve housing for Houston's low and moderate income residents.  Programs available include increasing home ownership through mortgage assistance programs, repairing or improving homes, and helping renovate and build affordable rental housing and transitional housing.


These housing programs are funded through federal grants (CDBG, HOME, ESG and HOPWA) and local resources including local affordable housing bonds. The Department strives to leverage these resources with community resources to further expand the supply of affordable housing.
