HUD to end youth, family homelessness, Announces $5 Million in Family Unification Funds

HUD eradicates youth and family homelessness by announcing a $5 million allocation for Family Unification Funds, emphasizing the importance of providing stable housing and support for vulnerable populations.

April 26, 2023

The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced this week that it will provide $5 Million in new Family Unification Program (FUP) voucher assistance for youth and families lacking safe and adequate housing.

Public Housing Authorities will partner with public child welfare agencies and Continuums of Care (CoC) via FUP to provide housing choice voucher assistance to two groups. The first group is the families lacking adequate housing and the youth who left foster care and are not more than 24 years of age.

With this funding opportunity, there will be better coordination among PHAs, CoCs, and PCWAs. Moreover, there will be increased access to supportive services for people in need.
