View All Glossary Definitions

A program under which Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers are provided to two different populations. It serves families for whom the lack of adequate housing is a primary factor in requiring the family's children to be in out-of-home care or the delay their return from out-of-home care. There is no time limit on FUP family vouchers. The program also serves youth 18-24 years old leaving foster care and at risk of homelessness. Eligible youth can receive FUP assistance for up to 36 months.
