About the TEDP Program

The Texas Eviction Diversion Pilot Program (TEDP), administered by GCCSA Inc helps Texas tenants stay in their homes and provides landlords an alternative to eviction. The TEDP 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. This program includes a special court process that allows courts to put eviction lawsuits on hold and divert them to the TEDP. The program seeks to reduce the number of evictions by enabling landlords and tenants to agree upon a resolution to non-payment of rent issues.
