Texas has been in the news a lot these days -- first with widespread power outages and winter storms, and just recently, when Gov. Greg Abbott rolled back the state's mask mandate (as well as other pandemic-related health measures). Now, with the launch of the Texas Rent Relief program, there's another bit of news to put on your radar -- especially if you're a renter or own a rental property yourself. The program offers up a whopping $1.3 billion in rental assistance for Texans who can't make their rent or other housing-related payments, and it's poised to be a big help for both struggling landlords and renters alike.
