Foster Youth to Independence Initiative: $869K allocated to public housing authorities

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is giving $869,000 to help 14 public housing groups in 10 different states. They want to help young people who were in foster care and are now on their own. These young people might not have a home or could be about to lose one. The plan is part of the Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) program.

This program gives special vouchers to people aged 18 to 24 who recently left foster care or will leave it soon. These vouchers help them get a place to live. The vouchers are not given out through a competition, and more will be given as time goes on.

The person in charge of HUD, Secretary Marcia L. Fudge, says it’s important to help young adults who don’t have families to support them. She believes they should have safe homes, especially as they become grown-ups because they are the future of the country. She thinks that no matter what happened in their past, they deserve a good place to live.

The program works together with groups that take care of children and other community organizations. This way, they can help young people learn how to live on their own.

If you want to know who can get this help or how to apply, you can find more details in something called PIH Notice 2023-04. And if you’re one of these young people who need help, the housing groups can use a special form called the Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) Application Request Form to ask for it.
