Housing Connect administers a Family Unification Voucher (FUP) program which is funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. The program serves families and youth ages 18 to 24 who are working with the Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
There is no statutory limitation on the time a family may receive housing assistance under the program. For the first 6 months of program participation families will receive case management from DCFS.
As required by statute, a FUP Voucher issued to such a youth may only be used to provide housing assistance for a time limited period. Youth will receive case management services for 18 months from DCFS.
All FUP eligible households must be referred to Housing Connect by the Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
