If you've been affected by the pandemic and have struggled to pay rent, you might be in luck. Thanks to the Texas Home Program and the nonprofit organization Under One Roof, you could get up to 6 months help on your rent. Here are the stipulations to qualify:

  • You must be a tenant. Which means it can be an apartment, townhouse, duplex, or property that where you pay rent.
  • Your household income must must be at or below 80% of the adjusted median family income.
  • You have lost income due to the pandemic.

If you qualify and get the assistance, it is good for up to 6 months and the payments will be made directly to your landlord.

  • The amount of people given one dose of the vaccine.
  • The amount of people given both doses of the vaccine.
  • How many of the counties in Texas have had at least one vaccine administered. And as I'm writing this, there's only one county that has zero. That's Loving County.
