Nextcity - Philly EDP

Instead of threatening eviction, however, Natasha’s building manager did something that, just a few years ago, wouldn’t have been an option in Philadelphia: She referred Natasha to Philadelphia’s Eviction Diversion Program (EDP), a collaboration between the City, legal support groups, housing counseling nonprofits, landlord advocacy organizations and others. It helps tenants at risk of being evicted go through mediation with their landlords to come up with a solution to keep people housed - and landlords paid.

Philly Tenant - What Is The Eviction Diversion Program

The Eviction Diversion Program can be good for tenants because attending eviction court is often stressful and may end with you being evicted AND getting a judgment on your record. Many landlords also want to participate in the program to avoid paying costly attorney and filing fees, attending hearings and evicting tenants. In addition, some tenants may be eligible for Targeted Financial Assistance (TFA).

Medium - Opposition From NY-Based Attorney Groups

“The Legal Aid Society and tenant attorney groups are showing their true colors. Instead of working to reduce evictions, they want to perpetuate a system that encourages more eviction filings in housing court,” CHIP Executive Director Jay Martin said. “When 90 percent of housing court cases are brought by the housing provider for non-payment, and the groups opposing ways to reduce that number are tenant attorneys, it clearly shows they have no interest in lessening the hardship for their clients for fear of reducing their own need.”

NYT - How Philadelphia Kept Thousands Of Tenants From Being Evicted

Under this program, if a tenant owes less than $3,000 in back rent, landlords must try mediation in good faith before eviction. If after 30 days the two sides cannot come to an agreement or a tenant has not shown up to mediation, the landlord can go to court to enforce the eviction. The result seems to be a boon for both parties: Tenants stay in their homes, while landlords are paid.
