Taos County Housing Authority New Mexico Housing Grants
Since 1964, the Taos County Housing Authority has been constructing hundreds of units under the funded program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) called the Operation Breakthrough. Taos, Questa, and Penasco are their prime locations where you can easily see the towering units consist of 34, 26 and 24 housing units respectively. In addition, they already accepted the transfer of the Town of Taos Housing properties that consist of 83 housing units.
For families and individuals who want to be qualified for the New Mexico housing grants being offered by the different programs of this organization, they must first meet the required Income Limit Guidelines set by the HUD. Like most housing authorities, this organization adapted the Section 8 Existing Housing Program to provide more housing benefits. Under this program, the deserving families and individuals of New Mexico can select their own housing units that perfectly fit their specific needs. The subsidy from the programs being agreed upon follows the family when they move. In this way, the payments are made directly to the landlords and not the tenants.
