Tenants advice and advocacy program

The Tenants’ Advice and Advocacy Program (TAAP) provides funding to non-profit organisations to provide information, community education, advice and advocacy services to public and private tenants in NSW. NSW Fair Trading is responsible for the administration of residential tenancy and parks legislation and TAAP assists the Government to achieve its consumer protection and social justice policy objectives through the ‘direct service’ provision of information, dispute resolution services and advocacy on behalf of tenants. In addition, TAAP provides a range of specialist ‘resource’ services and community engagement activities. The services provided by TAAP provide a particular focus for vulnerable and/or social housing tenants.

Key dates

The current funding period is from 1 July 2016 until 30 June 2019. The program is funded triennially and is closed for applications.

$10.4 million each year is currently available under this program. Funding under the Program is fully allocated.
