OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE…
…to build the highest quality, affordable rental communities for working class Texans in the towns and cities where it is needed most. Tejas Housing Group is the developer, owner, and operator of 19 attractive and successful multi-family developments constructed throughout Texas since 2001. We believe that access to quality housing is a fundamental component in building wholesome neighborhoods, cohesive families, and confident individuals.
Our communities offer individuals, families, and seniors a safe, comfortable living environment at an affordable cost. This objective is achieved by utilizing the Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program. Working in conjunction with the local governing bodies of each municipality, we strive to become a valued member of the community.
