In compliance with Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant requirements, Hays County will apply a priority method in the evaluation of submitted applications. Applicants will be prioritized for assistance based on household income criteria first, and consideration of household demographics second. Eligible applicants will be placed into priority categories as shown in the matrix.
Hays County has set a goal to apply 100 percent of the $3,703,459 in housing grant funds toward eligible LMI households. The County will make every effort to accomplish this through targeted outreach efforts and the implementation of application priority criteria at program intake.
Assistance through the 2015 Hays County Flood Recovery Program will support the repair, reconstruction, elevation, or buyout of homes damaged in 2015 flood events.
Homeowners interested in participating must live within Hays County in an area located outside of the City of San Marcos incorporated area and must demonstrate compliance with program eligibility requirements.
Hays County administers the 2015 Flood Recovery Program in compliance with Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Texas General Land Office (GLO) requirements and guidelines. View the County's GLO-approved Housing Guidelines as the link below:
