Title AND PROPERTY ASSISTANCE (TAPA)
The TAPA pilot program provides legal assistance to low-to-moderate income families on a variety of title and property issues. TAPA strives to help establish marketable title, to encourage neighborhood stability, and enable homeowners to become eligible for various funding to invest in their homes.
The program launched early June 2020 and is available on a first come, first served basis, until the $200,000.00 in allocated funds have been utilized.
When a relative passes away, or income is a problem, it is often difficult for heirs or owners to fix title issues with their homes. The TAPA program is designed to provide legal aid to residents to help them determine and document ownership on their homes.

The program is open to potential clients with an assumed or possible ownership interest in real property located within eligible geographic areas. To see if your address is potentially eligible for the program CLICK HERE.
In support of City Council's emphasis on equity – the pilot program will focus on specific areas in the Southern Sector who have a household income less than or equal to 120% AMI and are unrepresented by counsel.
Preference will be given to families in eligible geographical areas who have been denied funding for the City's Housing programs due to lack of ownership clarity.
