TITLE 10. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
PART 1. TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF
HOUSING AND COMMUNITY AFFAIRS
CHAPTER 5. COMMUNITY AFFAIRS
SUBCHAPTER H. SECTION 8 HOUSING
CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM
10 TAC 5.801
The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (the
"Department") proposes amendments to 10 TAC Chapter 5,
Subchapter H, 5.801 concerning Project Access Initiative.
The purpose of the proposed amendments is to make several
changes to the Project Access program, based on feedback
from the Disability Advisory Workgroup, to maintain a pilot
program with the Texas Department of State Health Services
(DSHS) to assist persons with disabilities to transition out of
State Psychiatric Hospitals, remove set asides for those over
and under the age of 62 that will allow both age groups to access
the same group of vouchers, and add persons with disabilities
transitioning out of Texas state psychiatric hospitals to the list
that can access the larger pool of vouchers if those set aside
for the pilot program fill up.
Project Access was originally a housing voucher pilot program
developed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment (HUD), the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS), and the Institute on Disability at the University
of New Hampshire. The original goal of the pilot program was to
assist low-income non-elderly persons with disabilities to transi-
tion from institutions into the community by providing access to
affordable housing and necessary supportive services.
FISCAL NOTE. Timothy K. Irvine, Executive Director, has de-
termined that, for each year of the first five years the amended
rule will be in effect, enforcing or administering the amended rule
does not have any foreseeable implications related to costs or
revenues of the state or local governments.
