The Family Unification Program (FUP) is a program under which housing assistance is provided under the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program in partnership with Public Child Welfare Agencies (PCWAs) to two groups:
- Families for whom the lack of adequate housing is a primary factor in the imminent placement of the family's child, or children, in out-of-home care; or the delay in the discharge of the child, or children, to the family from out-of-home care; and
- Youth at least 18 years and not more than 24 years of age (have not reached their 25th birthday), who left foster care, or will leave foster care within 90 days, in accordance with a transition plan described in Section 475(5)(H) of the Social Security Act, and are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless at age 16 or older. As required by statute, a FUP voucher issued to such a youth may only be used to provide housing assistance for the youth for a maximum of 36 months. (Entities eligible to use FUP vouchers awarded under this NOFA include, but is not limited to, PHAs approved for participation in the Family Unification Program and Family Self Sufficiency Demonstration pursuant to Notice PIH 2016-01.)
At the request of the Program Office and in accordance with the Family Unification NOFA, HUD will extend the submission deadline due to a period of unavailability of the G.g system for 30 hours, July 21-23, 2018 immediately before the submission deadline.
HUD may extend the application deadline for any program if Grants.gov is offline or not available to applicants for at least 24 hours immediately prior to the deadline date, or the system is down for 24 hours or longer and impacts the ability of applicants to cure a submission deficiency within the grace period. (FUP NOFA p. 26)
