Client advocates can help you stabilize your housing and financial situation by assisting you in applying for the FEPS (Family Eviction Prevention Supplement) subsidy as well as CITYFEPS Rent Supplement Program.
For DHS Shelter clients or individuals at risk of entering the shelter, we provide benefits advocacy, assistance in understanding and navigating the Housing Court process, referrals to legal services and other services to help stabilize housing. To be eligible, you need to (1) be receiving FEPS subsidy or (2) have ALL of the following: an active Housing Court case, a minor child in your household AND earn less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.
This program is funded by the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance and the NYC Department of Homeless Services.
