Texas statewide Eviction Diversion Program

The new Texas statewide eviction diversion program offers help during COVID-19 to renters and landlords. It applies once a lawsuit has been filed, and tenants are behind on rent.

A partnership of agencies in Texas has launched a State of Texas Eviction Diversion Program (TEDP). It’s specific for renters’ issues during the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is run by the Supreme Court of Texas, Texas Office of Court Administration, and the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA).

Texas’s eviction diversion program may provide up to six months of rental assistance for eligible tenants who
are behind on their rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic and have been sued for eviction.

Both the tenant and the landlord must agree to participate and meet eligibility requirements.
