Family Eviction Prevention Supplement

Need help paying back rent?

Quick Facts
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.

Look Out
The payments you receive from FEPS will not count towards your Food Stamps budget
