    Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV)

    The housing choice voucher program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.

    Multi-Family Housing (PH)

    These units are designed to house several different families in separate housing units.  These units are located in the South Valley and are for individuals who are disabled, mobility impaired and/or elderly.

    Family Unification Program (FUP)

    The Family Unification Program (FUP) is a program under which Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs) are provided to two different populations:

    1. 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 There is no time limitation on FUP family vouchers.
    2. Youth at least 18 years old and not more than 21 years old who left foster care at age 16 or older and who lack adequate housing. FUP vouchers used by youth are limited, by statute to 18 months of housing assistance.

    PHAs administer the FUP in partnership with Public Child Welfare Agencies (PCWAs) who are responsible for referring FUP families and youths to the PHA for determination of eligibility for rental assistance
