Special Voucher

Family Unification Program (FUP)

The Family Unification Program (FUP), in partnership with Child Protective Services (CPS), is designed to provide Housing Vouchers to families and youth in need of rental assistance. FUP provides housing to families whose children are in the foster care system or are in jeopardy of imminent placement due to inadequate housing conditions. FUP also provides housing to youth who are between the ages of 18 and 21, who lack adequate housing, no longer qualify under the foster care system, and are actively participating with CPS youth programs. Individuals, who may qualify, must contact their CPS case worker for more details in regards to CPS eligibility criteria. Once the family or young adult have undergone verification, CPS will refer the individual to the PHA and be placed in their waiting list in order to be evaluated under Section 8 policy.
