Tenants in Foreclosure Intervention Project
Tenants in Foreclosure Intervention Project (TFIP) focuses exclusively on the issues facing tenants living in buildings in foreclosure. TFIP provides:
- Legal representation for tenants in foreclosure;
- Counseling for tenants in foreclosure about their options and information about relocation options, as needed (see our new informational brochure for tenants and instructions for determining if your building is in foreclosure)
- Foreclosure early warning system designed to identify, map, and share key pieces of information about recently filed foreclosures on multi-unit buildings with our community partners who can then use the information to perform direct outreach with impacted tenants.);
- Training and ongoing support to community organizations to help them address issues related to tenants facing foreclosure
