At Fort Worth Housing Solutions, we believe everyone deserves an affordable home.
We offer several different types of housing assistance, namely:

Housing Choice Vouchers

Qualified applicants receive a voucher that can be used to cover a portion of rent. Voucher holders are responsible for finding an acceptable unit whose owner agrees to rent under the program. Voucher holders pay 30% of their adjusted income toward an approved rent and FWHS pays the difference. Adjusted income includes most sources of support, such as Social Security, VA benefits and child support.

FWHS determines a payment standard based on the fair market rent established by HUD for our area. The payment standard is used to calculate the amount of assistance a family will receive. By law, if a family moves to a new unit where the rent exceeds the payment standard, the family may not pay more than 40 percent of its adjusted monthly income for rent.

HCV Wait List

FWHS manages a limited number of Housing Choice Vouchers each year based on its federal allocation and budget. The agency maintains a program Wait List through a lottery system and assigns vouchers as they become available.

Note: Due to system glitch, Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) pre-applications will reopen from Monday, 6/17/2024 at 8:00 A.M. to Friday, 6/21/2024 at 11:59 P.M. at

If you cannot access the portal or need further assistance, email us at Based on the volume of calls we receive, FWHS cannot respond to general telephone inquiries.

Staff are available to assist those in need of a reasonable accommodation. Please call 817-333-3400 to schedule an appointment.

For other housing opportunities, please visit our Properties page for a list of mixed-income, multifamily communities that offer a portion of units at reduced rents to qualified applicants. You may view information on our Project-Based Vouchers below to learn more about housing assistance offered to special populations or attached to specific properties.

Under certain circumstances, a family may use its voucher to purchase a modest home through our Homeownership Program.

Project Based Vouchers

These are subsidized units that are set aside at a variety of affordable apartment communities for individuals and families whose household income is lower than 50 percent of the area’s median income. Tenants pay 30% of their adjusted income toward an approved rent and FWHS pays the difference.

Some programs have specific requirements, including programs that serve special groups such as veterans and individuals who are chronically homeless.

NOTE: Project Based Voucher wait lists will open June 10, 2024 at 8:00 AM to June 14, 2024 at 11:59 PM. Please click below for information on how to apply.

Homelessness Programs

FWHS offers housing assistance for individuals and families who are homeless, including veterans and those with disabilities. Persons must be referred by a partner agency.

Mainstream Voucher Program

Mainstream vouchers assist non-elderly persons ages 18 to 61 who have disabilities. While they serve a special population, Mainstream vouchers are administered using the same rules as other housing choice vouchers.

Public Housing

Fort Worth Housing Solutions has transitioned out of traditional public housing in an effort to de-concentrate poverty and improve opportunities for our residents.

Affordable Housing

FWHS owns numerous quality, affordable apartment communities across the City of Fort Worth. We are also developing new properties in neighborhoods with access to good schools, transportation, jobs, grocery stores and other important services. Many properties serve a mix of incomes in which some residents pay a lower rent and others do not.


The Rental Assistance Demonstration program offers affordable living in a variety of quality apartments across Fort Worth.

Tenants pay 30 percent of their adjusted income for rent in this program. At any given time, RAD units may become available at any of these apartment communities.

Please contact the property directly to see if any RAD units are available and to find out if you qualify for an available unit.
