HUD Grants $800K to Public Housing for Foster Youth Initiative

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) gave $800,000 to 18 public housing authorities (PHAs) in 12 states. They are providing 84 vouchers as part of the Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) program. This program helps young people aged 18-24 who are leaving foster care within 90 days or have recently left. The vouchers help them find a home and avoid homelessness. HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge says it’s important for these young adults to have stable housing as they start their adult lives.

The FYI program is a team effort. PHAs work with child welfare agencies and community groups to support these young adults on their path to independence. You can learn more about who qualifies in PIH Notice 2023-04, and PHAs can request help through the PHA’s Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) Application Request Form.
