2019 Family Unification Program Notice of Funding Availability: 1. Purpose and Summary. a. Overview. The Family Unification Program (FUP) is a program under which housing assistance is provided under the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program in partnership with Public Child Welfare Agencies (PCWAs) to two groups: 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 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. b. Policy Priorities. This NOFA adopts the following policy priorities: 1. Increase coordination between the PHA, PCWA, and CoC. 2. Community leveraging of data to strategically allocate and use resources. 3.

Additional Information on Eligibility
a. Only PHAs that have an existing Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) with HUD for HCVs are eligible to apply for funding under this announcement. b. Eligible PHAs must have demonstrated a commitment to administer FUP, which shall be verified by an executed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the PHA, PCWA, and CoC, and in accordance with this NOFA. 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.
