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 is now closed. Any applications received after June 15, 2021, at 5pm will not be accepted as the due date has passed.

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.

Submitted a pre-application on June 14, 2021 – June 15, 2021?  View or make changes to your rental application by emailing hcvwaitinglist@ctcog.org

What is Mainstream Voucher?

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. Funding and financial reporting for Mainstream vouchers is separate from the regular tenant-based voucher program.

Supporting Documentation

Supporting documentation is required for homelessness and disability preferences must be turned in within 10-business days of receipt of pre-application. You can email mainstream@ctcog.org, fax 254-770-2329, or mail your documentation.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL (254) 770-2301.
