Rental Programs Administered

Taylor Housing Authority administers two programs. The public housing program and the Housing Choice Voucher program.

THA currently owns Mary Olson apartments. To apply for public housing, you must complete an application. Applications are available in front of the office and can be either mailed or dropped off. The waiting list is currently about 18-24 months long, depending on the size of unit needed. Once you apply, please make sure to report any changes to address or phone number while on the waiting list. This is the only way we can contact you. 

Applications may only be submitted Tuesday and Wednesday, 1-5 PM in person at our main office, located at 311C East 7th. St., Taylor, TX 76574.


THA also administers a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program which assists approximately 210 families. The Voucher program is a rental subsidy program where families choose where they want to live (based on certain criteria) and the rental subsidy is paid to the landlord. If anyone is interested in leasing their units to a Section 8 participant, they should contact our office at (512) 352-3231 ext. 112. Applications for the voucher program are only accepted periodically as vouchers become available.

Those interested in portability and relocating to Taylor, TX should contact us at (512) 352-3231, ext. 112.

Volunteer Opportunities

The THA is always seeking volunteers to assist with a variety of things such as visiting the elderly, assisting with special events, participating in resource fairs and assisting with our garden, as well as other opportunities. Please contact our office for more information.

Resident Services

The housing authority currently provides access to WI-FI and a computer for residents at the Mary Olson office. Some of the residents use the computer to look up important information such as insurance and social security information.

THA also has an onsite library where residents can borrow books on an honor system. Residents have been taking advantage of this on a regular basis. We hope to continue expanding the library through donations of books from the community.
