You must apply at an authorized FEPS organization. Call the Legal Aid Society closest to
you for a list of organizations:
The organization you choose will submit your application to the state, which will
determine eligibility and send an approval letter to the organization. They
will then send this letter to HRA, which will pay the rent arrears directly to
your landlord and begin to make monthly rent supplement payments.
This whole process can take 30 days or more.
- If you are receiving FEPS, you must be pre-approved before you move. There are several valid reasons for
-- Inability to pay rent
-- Court-ordered vacate notice
-- Health, safety, or other compelling reasons
