Fostering Youth to Independence (FYI) Webinar

November 12, 2020 | Download Handouts



Now, more than ever, affordable and safe housing is a great need for youth aging out of foster care. The good news is that HUD just issued new policies that expand the FYI program to more counties in Pennsylvania and across the country. The FYI program couples a Housing Choice Voucher provided by the housing authority with supportive services provided or arranged by the child welfare agency for youth aging out of foster care for up to 36 months. Youth between the ages of 18 and 24 are eligible.
