The Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs has released the staff draft of its 2013 Multifamily Programs Rules. This document includes the Uniform Multifamily Rules, the Qualified Allocation Plan and the Multifamily Bond Rules. This new format for TDHCA is an attempt to move away from separate rules for each multifamily program and combine them into a single comprehensive rule that, combined with the multifamily bond rules and the Qualified Allocation Plan, will govern all multifamily activity. TDHCA hopes that this document will create more consistency and reduce repetition across their programs.

The working draft is meant to facilitate conversation and public comment as the staff continues to identify areas for revision. It will be placed on the department’s online discussion forum and divided into topics in order to solicit feedback. The components of this document will be discussed at the August 28th workgroup discussion.
