The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is hosting a webinar on the Foster Youth to Independence (FYI) initiative on Jan. 27, 2021, from 12-1 p.m. CT.
This webinar will provide an overview of the FYI initiative and an update on new funding opportunities. Staff from the Children’s Bureau will provide an overview of the child welfare system and the intersection with FYI. The webinar will also feature staff from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Division of Youth Services, who will provide an overview of the Workforce and Opportunities Act (WIOA) Youth Program and how this program may be leveraged to serve young people.
This webinar is a great opportunity for local programs that are interested in how to best support older youth with housing as they move to independence.
