Apply for Housing in Texas

The process to become a Section 8 landlord is actually quite simple. There isn’t a Section 8 landord application as such. The potential Section 8 landlord will contact their housing authority when their property is ready to be inspected. If it passes inspection, the landlord will complete the Housing Assistance Payment Contract with the Housing Authority. After this, they will seek out tenants that have completed a Section 8 housing application. This is typically referred to as low income housing or a low income housing application situation. Like the tenant, the landlord will have to complete these necessary forms in the area that they wish to rent. For example, if their property is in Houston, Texas then they must contact and follow the instructions of the housing authority of Houston, Texas.

  • Write a REPLY below and get on the HOUSING LIST. Comment on your current housing situation and what type of housing you are looking for, Section 8 or otherwise. This will allow landlords to contact you directly if they can accommodate you.

I just got out of an abusive relationship & I have a one year old son. I am back living with my mom & I’m in a small room that I share with my son.

    My name is Kourtney. I am a single mom of two kids. I am living with my mom in a three bedroom house. I am sleeping on the couch. There is no kind of stability and the septic tank broke so the whole downstairs had flooded. This is not a good living situation especially when my oldest has asthma and were all breathing in maybe mold because of the downstairs flooded the bathroom and other rooms. I am looking for a spacious 3 bedroom/ 2 bath, in a safe neighborhood, good schools and spacious. I am looking here in the Houston area, Dallas, Austin area. I can use a little assistance, so I can pay off bills and get back on my feet.

      Good Afternoon, I have lived in San Antonio, Texas my whole life and have tried to live a moralistic and religious lifestyle to the best of my ability.I am a single mother that has been in and out of an abusive marriage that has forced myself and my son to do the best that we can on our own. I am twenty eight years old and have a two year old son. I am trying incredibly hard to maintain a stable living environment for my child to grow up in a comfortable household at the same time trying to avoid any more confusion in his life. He is on medicade and at this time I cannot afford health care for myself. My mother passed when I was sixteen so I understand how it is to be alone growing up. My son has only me as his one parent because he has been denied by his father so I am the only source of income and emotional support. I’m trying to enroll into school to but at this time I cannot afford much. Its hard when daycare is expensive and we do not own a vehicle. At this time I am currently working at a dental office as a housekeeper/receptionist. My twenty two year old sister has also a very similar past is now a part of my responsibility along with my two year old nephew. At this time we are doing the best we can as single mothers trying to make a better life for our sons.

        If we can I am looking for a two-three bedroom house in a descent neighborhood either one or two story, please no duplexes I believe that’s too dangerous for my son. Possibly in the south or southwest area. I grew up in the lack land subdivision and had family in the big country area. If there is a place near there I could afford from a 450 to 650 dollar monthly payment for a home. I look forward to hearing from you with details. Thank you for your time.

At this time we do not have a vehicle to our name and the opposing parent is not in the picture. I have tried to do my best with my life decisions trying to avoid being in this situation. As time as progressed my sister and her two year old son have looked to me for help. I am destitute financially from paycheck to paycheck. Affording to pay daycare is a task and sometimes its hard to wonder how money is constantly moving in order just to get by. Any help in order to raise a better Hispanic man would be a great help. My greatest fear is either raising my son on the street or him growing up believing struggle is a way of life.

    I am a single mom of 2 kids. And we are currently staying in my parents spare bedroom. We are all 3 in one room. It’s a bit cramped. I am in the middle of a divorce. There is no central heat in the house and it is taking its toll on all 3 of us!

    I am a single mom of 2 children and we are currently staying with a friend. We all have to share one bedroom and have no privacy. Now that it is winter my friend does not turn the heat on in the house and my kids and I freeze. As a result my daughter and I are both sick. During the summer we were not allowed to put an a/c unit in the window of our room so that we could stay comfortable. She has a 16 year old daughter who likes to run around practical half naked and I have an 11 year old son. I am looking for a 3 bedroom house for us.
