Family Unification Program (FUP) a collaborative effort between the DHCD and the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The program targets:
- families with children in placement who have substantially complied with all the DCF service plan tasks, but do not have permanent or adequate housing to which their children can be returned, and
- families for whom lack of adequate housing is the primary factor in the threat of or imminent placement of the family’s child, or children in out of home care, and
- battered women with their children who have not secured permanent, standard, replacement housing, and
- youth that are at least 18 years old and not more than 21 years old who left foster care at the age of 16 or older and who lack adequate housing.
All applicants must be referred by the DCF and have an open DCF case at the time of referral, selection, and when the voucher is issued.
