Rental Programs Administered
Taylor Housing Authority administers two programs. The public housing program and the Housing Choice Voucher program.
(Effective November 30, 2017, the Taylor Housing Authority (THA) will no longer be accepting Public Housing applications. Please contact our office at (512) 352-3231, if you should have any questions.)
Taylor Housing Authority owns apartments which are located off of 7th Street and have 43 units. Applications for public housing must be filled out online.
THA also administers a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program which assists approximately 210 families. The Voucher program is a rental subsidy program where families choose where they want to live (based on certain criteria) and the rental subsidy is paid to the landlord. If anyone is interested in leasing their units to a Section 8 participant, they should contact our office at (512) 352-3231 ext. 112. Applications for the voucher program are only accepted periodically as vouchers become available.
Those interested in portability and relocating to Taylor, TX should contact us at (512) 352-3231, ext. 112.
The THA is always seeking volunteers to assist with a variety of things such as visiting the elderly, assisting with special events, participating in resource fairs and assisting with our garden, as well as other opportunities. Please contact our office for more information.
The housing authority currently provides access to WI-FI and a computer for residents at the Mary Olson office. Some of the residents use the computer to look up important information such as insurance and social security information.
THA also has an onsite library where residents can borrow books on an honor system. Residents have been taking advantage of this on a regular basis. We hope to continue expanding the library through donations of books from the community.
