To provide Federal housing assistance on behalf of youths who are aging out of foster care, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Rep. Madeleine Dean — D — PA

Makes three major changes to Family Unification Program (FUP) vouchers that are first issued to qualifying adults after the date of enactment. Under current law, people between the ages of 18 and 24 who were in foster care and are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless may use vouchers to help pay for housing for up to 36 months. Once that housing assistance ends, the voucher is reissued to another eligible household or individual. The changes are: extending the assistance period for those vouchers for up to 60 months if the holder of the voucher meets requirements for education, job training, or work; is disabled; is caring for a child under the age of six or a disabled person; or is in a drug treatment program; requiring Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to terminate those vouchers used by those young adults once their initial period of assistance ends and not reissue them to another eligible household; and allowing PHAs to receive a supplemental administrative fee if they waive their residency preference for a young adult who receives a voucher.
