Texas Eviction Diversion Program Hotline

For qualified individuals in Texas rural counties, TLSC can assist with information and advice regarding rent and eviction relief. We also can help tenants complete the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) Texas Rent Relief Program application. TLSC can help eligible tenants: 

Complete required forms so landlord receives back rent
Negotiate with landlord so you may stay in your home
Keep eviction off your record
Make rent and utility payments

 

For other qualified individuals, TLSC can provide in-court representation.
