The Texas General Land Office has posted regional housing guidelines developed by the Deep East Texas Region providing guidance for the Homeowner Assistance Program in Jasper, Newton, Polk, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, and Tyler counties.

Housing Guidelines: The GLO and its subrecipients are required to develop housing guidelines to provide operational details on the eligibility requirements, housing assistance caps, construction standards, accessibility requirements, visitability standards, reporting requirements, and other program requirements.

Regional housing guidelines are developed following a needs assessment to determine the activities to be offered, the demographics to receive concentrated attention, the disabled, special needs, vulnerable populations, and target areas to be served. The needs assessment will also include an assessment of the types of public services activities that may be needed to complement the program, such as housing counseling, legal counseling, job training, mental health, and general health services.

The GLO and subrecipients administering the Program are committed to affirmatively furthering fair housing through established affirmative marketing policies.

Regional Housing Guidelines Information:

Regional housing guidelines will be posted for public review and comment on the GLO's website for 30 days. All comments should be submitted to by 5:00 p.m. on November 18, 2018, to be considered.
