Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency offers temporary rental housing to Hurricane Harvey evacuees

Owners of all Affordable Housing Tax Credit properties in Oklahoma may provide temporary housing to individuals displaced by Hurricane Harvey.  The temporary housing period for this emergency housing relief began Aug. 23 and ends Aug.31, 2018.

Displaced individuals should contact the properties directly to inquire about vacancies. A database listing of Tax Credit properties along with more information about the program can be found on OHFA’s website. Eligible individuals include those who have been displaced from their principal residence as a result of a Hurricane Harvey and whose principal residence was located in an area designated as eligible for Individual Assistance by FEMA.

Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency operates the program that provides rental housing to qualified households across the state. Since 1987, more than 28,000 rental units in about 500 properties across the state have been built with Affordable Housing Tax Credits.
