YOU WILL HAVE TO EXPLAIN THE FEPS PROGRAM TO THE LANDLORD ON HOW THE GOVERNMENT PAY. A LOT OF AGENTS DONT KNOW HOW IT WORK , WHEN YOU SPEAK TO THE AGENT ABOUT CO-BROKER THEY DON'T WANT TOO.

from my understanding, it is a program for people who did not pay rent to their landlord and still stayed in the landlords place. The landlord then takes them to court for an eviction and from there they get the program which pays the back rent and subsidizes future rent for 5 years.

it does not sound like a program designed to move with (average landlord screen by eviction) so if somebody is trying to move with feps it probably means the current landlord was so upset with that tenant that they would rather get rid of them than accept the back rent and future rent the program pays to keep them.

No.... It is a program for someone who was evicted but not necessarily because they did not pay rent, There are several other reasons and situations that has/can occur for you to be evicted.

Not true. My building was purchased and the rent increase is causing myself and son and mother to downsize. I qualify for Moving State FEPS as I was evicted a few years back and went through the shelter. The previous landlord before my building was purchased was owed rent due to MY immigration issues which caused me to owe. They were willing to accept the program but the sale of the building was finalized. The new owners do not give leases, only month to month tenancy. Without a lease I cannot use the program. So it's not always because the landlord was upset with their tenant sir.

Sometimes the voucher is $1050 and the client rent is $1200 so Feps wont help that person. Cannot do side-deals

What is it?
The Family Eviction Prevention Supplement was started in 2005 by the Human Resources Administration of New York City as a program to pay back rent and provide ongoing rental assistance for families receiving Public Assistance.

What do you get?
If you meet eligibility criteria, your rent arrears (up to $7,000) will be paid, and you will receive a monthly housing supplement for ongoing excess rent.

How long do you get it
The rental arrears payment is a one-time deal, but the monthly housing supplement lasts for five years.

Hope this helps you.. George
