COVID-19 RELIEF PROGRAMS

Project BRAVO is offering assistance for those at risk of homelessness due to lack of rent or mortgage payments. Payments will be issued directly to landlords and financial institutions through ACH payments. Property owner information is required as part of the application process.

For more information, please call the COVID-19 Resources Department at 915- 562-4100, press 5 then press 2.

The number of applications we have received in 2021, plus pending applications from 2020 have exceeded our funding capacity. Because of the high demand, Project BRAVO will temporarily stop accepting rent and mortgage assistance applications after 4:30 PM on January 11, 2021. We will open the application process for rent/mortgage assistance once additional funding is available. Subscribe to our social media pages for program updates.

Assistance through the Texas Eviction Diversion Program continues unchanged.
