HUD To Prevent Homelessness After Foster Care By Giving $30 Million To PHAs
HUD takes proactive measures to prevent homelessness among individuals exiting foster care by allocating $30 million to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs).
The Department of Housing and Urban Development recently announced making available $30 Million for Public Housing Authorities in non-competitive funding through the Foster Youth to Independence Initiative (FYI).
The Initiative makes housing choice vouchers available to PHAs for young adults 18-24 years of age who have left foster care or are about to leave foster care in the next 90 days. The PHAs need to collaborate with Public Child Welfare agencies to request funding on a rolling basis.
Keeping in mind the goal of Bidden-Harris goal to reduce homelessness by 25% by 2025, the president’s 2024 budget includes $9 Billion in funds to establish a housing choice voucher program for all youth aging out of foster care.
