Paying Your Rent
The Corpus Christi Housing Authority allows for several methods of payment for your monthly rent and/or balances owed.
- Option #1 – The CCHA encourages families to use it’s new online payment processing portal known as Rent Café. Using this method residents will be able to pay online, view prior payment history, and view current account balances. CCHA prefers that residents use this method so that staff has time can continue working on Community improvements and services.

- Option #2 – CCHA residents can also continue paying rent either in person or dropping it off in the Management drop off box. This can be done by writing a check or money order payable to your property, adding your current address, and dropping it off in person or in the drop slot.

- Option #3 – Residents also have the option of setting up Automatic Debit for paying their rent. While the account holder remains responsible for assuring that adequate funds are available in the account, there is no longer a need to remember due dates and write checks. This Automatic Debit from a residents’ bank account is processed by the bank and is a safe, secure payment option. An Auto Debit is a transaction that electronically takes money out of one bank account and transfers it to another, on a mutually agreed upon regularly occurring date. This process is fully automated. When an ACH Auto debit is initiated, funds will be taken on the scheduled date from the origin account (resident’s account) and transferred to the appropriate vendor (Frost Bank) without the origin account holder taking any additional action. The account holder is also responsible for updating the forms if there are any changes to their bank or rent.
* REMINDER – Rent is due on the first working day of each month to the Property in which you reside. The CCHA has rules regarding late payments and non-payment of rent. These rules can be located in your lease.
