FYI: Preparing, Selecting, and Referring Youth

College Park, Maryland
Monday, August 19, 2019 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

This is the third in a series of weekly FYI webinars hosted by The National Center for Housing and Child Welfare (NCHCW) and Foster ACTION Ohio to help communities implement HUD's new FYI initiative, which was designed and delivered to Sec. Carson by current and former foster youth on March 4, 2019.  HUD published the NOFA on July 26.  This call will feature staff from the California Youth Connection to explain how youth are prepared for being successful tenants.  This call will also include instructions from Continuum of Care leaders who identify older homeless youth for referrals to FUP.  The FYI notice emphasizes hat CoCs must be considered as a referral source to the PCWAs and should be included in planning so that youth can be diverted from homelessness whenever possible.  It is important to note that PHAs nationwide have a rich history of administering FUP, inlcuding many CLPHA members.  We urge you to reach out to if you are willing share your expertise as a co-presenter or in any other way.  Thank you for all that you do!
