Texas Eviction Diversion Program (TEDP)

The TEDP is a voluntary program that permits eligible landlords and tenants to agree upon a resolution to the issues raised in an eviction case. If eligibility requirements are met, past due rent obligations and utility delinquencies may be eligible to be covered in full and the eviction case dismissed.

“If you and your landlord agree to participate in the Texas Eviction Diversion Program, you may be able to have up to 15 months of the rent you owe paid and stop your eviction. At your trial, the court will notify you about the Program and ask if you are interested in participating.  Find out more about the Program in the attached brochure, titled State of Texas Eviction Diversion Program, and at www.txcourts.gov/eviction-diversionand at https://texaslawhelp.org/article/texas-eviction-diversion-program. You may also call Texas Legal Services Center for assistance at 855-270-7655.”

 

Where Can I Learn More About the Program?

The Texas Legal Services Center has established a toll-free hotline to assist individuals seeking legal assistance at 855-270-7655.

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has established a website and a toll-free hotline to provide information at 833-9TX-RENT (833-989-7368). Assistance is available Monday-Saturday from 8 am - 6 pm Central Standard Time.
