Section 3: Payments and Authorization

Anchor: #i999740

Payments

Last resort housing payments shall be paid in a lump sum to the displacee, except when TxDOT finds that handling a relocation payment on an installment basis is better. When installment payments are warranted, obtain advance approval for such payment in writing from ROW PD before making a commitment to the displacee. The written approval shall be included with the request for payment submission.

Submit all last resort housing claims according to Computation of Payments: Replacement Housing Payment and Entitlements for 90-Day Owner-Occupants.
