The CTCOG Housing program assists in the expansion of housing opportunities for low-income families, the elderly, and disabled individuals in the region. Our staff is available to applicants, tenants, and landlords interested in the Section 8 Housing Assistance Program.

Housing Assistance

The Housing Choice Waiting list will open Monday, January 31, 2022, at 8am.

Waiting list placement information will not be given until 90-days after submission.

Once the waiting list opens CTCOG will be accepting pre-applications. Pre-applications will be used to create a list of parties interested in the Housing Assistance Program serving Texas- Bell, Coryell, Lampasas, Mills, Milam, San Saba, and Hamilton Counties.

Pre-applicants residing outside of our region must live in one of the designated counties for one year.

How It Works

Applicants will need access to the internet, an up-to-date web browser, valid email address, and basic information about their household. Applicants will only be able to submit one application per household.

Mainstream vouchers assist non-elderly persons with disabilities. Aside from serving a special population, Mainstream vouchers are administered using the same rules as other housing choice vouchers.
