Evaluation of the Family Unification Program and Family Self-Sufficiency Demonstration


Ongoing research banner

This combined program demonstration was designed to be implemented by public housing authorities (PHAs) that offer both Family Unification Program (FUP) vouchers and Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) services. Removing the shorter time limit on the FUP vouchers for youth and adding case management services through the FSS program were two means for improving outcomes for youth aging out of foster care. As such, the evaluation is meant to assess how well this program fulfills the intent to serve these youth as well as the effectiveness of partnerships between the PHAs and the public child welfare agencies and other youth-focused organizations with whom they partner to deliver services. The evaluation is currently underway and will assess the implementation and short-term efficacy of the demonstration. A final report is expected in August 2022.
