The Family Eviction Prevention Supplement (FEPS) Application Assistance Program assists families on public assistance with children under the age of 18 (or 18 and in high school) that have rent above their shelter allowance apply for the FEPS supplement.  The supplement directs Public Assistance to increase the family’s shelter allowance so that they can better afford to pay their rent.

In order to qualify, applicants must be sued for nonpayment of rent and their monthly rent must be greater than their current shelter allowance.  Clients seeking to apply must be referred by the Human Resource Administration (HRA) Homeless Diversion Unit (HDU).

To apply for FEPS, please obtain a referral to BronxWorks from your Public Assistance worker.  They will prescreen you and give you important papers for your application.  Then you may make an appointment with BronxWorks at the Hunts Point Multi-Service Center, 630 Jackson Avenue, 3rd floor.

Please make sure you bring the following documents in order to be scheduled for an appointment:

  • Most recent court stipulation
  • Notice of Eviction (if applicable)
  • Current lease, with qualifying rent amount, valid for at least one year from the date of your FEPS appointment
  • Preferential rent letter (if applicable)
  • Old lease (if arrears occurred during old lease)
