HUD To Put An End To Homelessness After Foster Care

HUD strives to put an end to homelessness by providing housing choice vouchers to youth coming out of foster care. 

 

September 28, 2023

The Department of Housing and Urban Development allocated $800,000 in funds this month to 18 Public Housing Authorities in 12 different states which equals 84 vouchers in total. 

These funds are the part of Foster Youth to Independence Initiative (FYI) which in turn is entrusted with the responsibility of providing housing choice vouchers to youth aged 18-24 who have left foster care or are about to leave it within 90 days and are experiencing the risk of homelessness. It is through the Foster Youth to Independence initiative that Public housing Agencies work with child welfare agencies and other community organizations.
