Background & NOFA
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released its 2019 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) application for the Family Unification Program (FUP).
FUP is a housing resource for integrated housing/services, including supportive housing, for families involved in child welfare systems and is an important part of providing assistance to many youth as well. This is a federally-funded tool that bolsters CSH efforts to replicate Keeping Families Together through our One Roof effort and our work around youth experiencing homelessness.
Free Information & Guidance
On November 21, CSH, in partnership with CLPHA, held a free Webinar for public housing agencies and other interested parties contemplating applications for FUP vouchers.
The link to the full recording of that Webinar can be found here and is offered free of charge.
The complete PowerPoint presentation of slides used during the Webinar is accessed by clicking here. Follow along with the slides as you listen to the recording.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) also provides helpful information (technical walk-through explanations, FAQs, and videos) on this website page.
Additional questions can be sent to HUD at 2019FUPNOFA@hud.gov or to the presenters of the Webinar (contact information found on slides).
CSH would like to thank our partners at CLPHA for co-sponsoring and co-hosting the November 21 Webinar with us. Also, we extend our appreciation to representatives from public housing agencies in Snohomish County, WA and Akron, OH for sharing local examples and experiences with respect to the implementation and effectiveness of FUP vouchers.
