|Description:||The Ray Marshall Center has partnered with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) to perform research activities related to TDHCA’s residents. The purpose of this research will be to obtain input from TDHCA residents about aspects of their living situations as they pertain to statewide regulations set forth in the Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) and Uniform Multifamily Rules. Specifically, this research will investigate residents’ opinions about their neighborhoods, development features, and tenant services. Overall, this project will provide a representative portrait of residents’ lived experiences and nuanced opinions about their homes, with the goal of identifying what residents most value in their living situations. The research will be conducted in two phases – a series of four focus groups and one quantitative survey.
