Watch out for SCAMS! Reportedly, there are Internet Sites claiming to be application sites for voucher assistance. They are taking fees and personal information from people claiming to put them on waiting lists. These are BOGUS! The only way you can apply for voucher assistance is directly through a local housing authority. In Texas, go to to find the applicable housing authority.
