Residential Contractors

The City of Houston Housing & Community Development Department oversees programs that design, build, and rehabilitate homes. We work with builders to complete this work.

Many of the below opportunities are being offered to an existing pool of builders who have signed contracts with the City. If your organization does not have an existing contract with the Housing and Community Development Department, you can submit a Request for Qualifications during open windows to begin working with us.

Please note that funding opportunities related to Hurricane Harvey recovery can be found at recovery.houstontx.gov .

Vital Partners

Some of the funding available for projects comes from Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) funding. TIRZs are designated areas that fund capital improvements within their boundaries, using tax revenue. There are 27 TIRZs within the City of Houston. Eight of these TIRZs contribute a third of the money they raise to build affordable units. TIRZ funds make up most of the local funding that HCDD receives.

The New Home Development Program is a partnership with the Houston Land Bank and the Houston Community Land Trust . The Houston Community Land Trust is a nonprofit, community-based organization that buys and leases land to keep homes affordable for the long-term.
