"I'm experiencing homelessness or at risk of being homeless"
Do I qualify for public housing?
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a program named Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) Initiative, a federal housing program aimed at preventing homelessness among young adults (as old as 24) who have spent time in foster care after the age of 16. It provides 36 months of rental assistance “on demand” for youth in private apartments. To learn more about how to apply, check our our "Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) Housing Vouchers" page.
