Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA public housing agencies to provide housing assistance to families and youth between the ages of 18 and 24 who are at risk of homelessness. Applicants are advised that the registrations required to apply may take up to four weeks to complete. Funding is intended for two groups:

  1. 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
  2. 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.

This NOFA adopts the following policy priorities:

  1. Increase coordination between public housing agencies (PHAs), PCWAs, and Continuums of Care (CoCs);
  2. Leverage data to strategically target and prioritize the use of resources for eligible families and youth;
  3. Strengthen connections to the HUD Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program or similar programs promoting self-sufficiency; and
  4. Increase access to supportive services.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

c. HUD will only consider funding one application per PHA. This one application limit applies regardless of whether the PHA is a State or regional PHA. In instances where a PHA has more than one PHA code number due to its operating under the jurisdiction of more than one HUD Field Office, a separate application, under each code, shall be considered for funding with the cumulative total of vouchers applied for under the applications not to exceed the maximum number of vouchers the PHA is eligible to apply for under this NOFA (i.e., no more than the number of vouchers the same PHA would be eligible to apply for it had only one PHA code number).

d. A contract administrator that does not have an ACC with HUD for HCVs, but constitutes a PHA under 24 CFR 982.4 by reason of its administering HCVs on behalf of another PHA, is not eligible to submit an application under this NOFA. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for or receive, awards made under this announcement.
