The Tenancy Preservation Program (TPP) is a homelessness prevention program. TPP works with tenants, including families with children with disabilities, facing eviction as a result of behavior related to a disability (e.g. mental illness, mental retardation, substance abuse, aging related impairments). TPP functions as a neutral party to the landlord and tenant. In consultation with the Housing Court Department, TPP works with the property owner and tenant to determine whether the disability can be reasonably accommodated and the tenancy preserved.
TPP specialists assess the reasons for the eviction, identify needed services, develop a treatment plan to maintain the tenancy, and monitor the case for as long as is necessary. TPP makes regular reports to all parties involved in the case (i.e. the Court, property owner, and tenant). Though not a housing search program, if the tenancy cannot be preserved, TPP coordinates the tenant's transition to a more appropriate placement, preventing homelessness whenever possible.
