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.

Pre-applications will be used to create a list of parties interested in the Mainstream Voucher Program serving Texas – Bell, Coryell, Lampasas, Mills, Milam, San Saba, and Hamilton counties.

Pre-applications residing outside our region must live in CTCOG jurisdiction for one year.

To qualify for the Mainstream Voucher, applicants must meet the following requirements:

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.
