Temporary protected status protects foreign residents currently living in the U.S. whose homeland conditions are recognized by the US government as being temporarily unsafe to inhabit (e.g., war, earthquake, flood, drought, or other extraordinary temporary conditions). TPS does not allow for permanent resident status. It may be granted anywhere from 6-18 months with extensions.
