HUD announced $1.4 million in Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) funding for youth transitioning out of foster care who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. HUD’s FYI initiative makes housing choice voucher (HCV) assistance available to public housing agencies in partnership with public child welfare agencies to assist youth aged 18-24 (who are aging out or have aged out of foster care) with rental assistance. To be eligible for FYI funding, public housing authorities must: administer an HCV program; enter into a partnership agreement with a public child welfare agency; accept young people referred by their partnering public child welfare agency; and determine that the referred youth are eligible for HCV assistance. Over the past year, the FYI initiative has awarded $12.7 million in 45 states to assist youth in accessing housing stability.
