The vouchers are non-competitive and part of the Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) Initiative due to which, the housing choice vouchers are made available to PHAs for young adults who left HUD foster care support between the age of 18-24 or are leaving in the next 90 days and are at high risk of homelessness.
