The City of Amarillo’s Community Development Department is in the process of approving applications for the rental assistance program. The housing assistance waiting list closed in October 2014 but due to policy changes from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) the city is now able to reopen the waiting list. Recent sign-up events have created approximately 450 applications that are undergoing review for rental assistance program placement.
Community Development is seeking rental property owners interested in partnering with the City in order to meet the need of the housing assistance program by providing quality and affordable living units. In addition to serving program clients, there are many benefits to rental property owners who participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
Interested private property owners with available units to rent should contact Housing Administrator, Kelley Shaw, at (806) 378-4203 for additional information.
