This is the second webinar in series of webinars that aim to help counties bring affordable housing options to youth aging out of the child welfare system. In this second webinar, we will focus on The Foster Youth to Independence Program. This is a new HUD program that allows Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), in collaboration with child welfare agencies, to access rental assistance through vouchers for youth who are or have aged out of foster care and are between ages 18 and 24. To get this program in your community, child welfare agencies need the collaboration of eligible housing authorities. In this webinar we will provide information and tips to help child welfare agencies establish partnerships with housing authorities so that the FYI program can benefit youth in your county. We will also hear from Courtney Lewis, Kemberly Stevenson, and Charles Keenan about their work to bring the FYI program to Allegheny County.
What You Will Learn:
The basics of the FYI program and how it can help meet the transition needs of youth aging out of care in your county.
Tips to help your agency gear up to make the pitch for the program and develop the capacity to support the program.
Steps for connecting with your local housing authority and laying the groundwork for a partnership.
The steps Allegheny County took to begin the FYI program.
