The Placer County Housing Authority (PCHA) is opening its Housing Choice Voucher waitlist to accept pre-applications by direct referral for the Family Unification Program (FUP) beginning July 1, 2021, at 8:00 a.m. Referrals will be accepted from partnering social services agency, Placer County Children’s System of Care (CSOC). Applicants referred to PCHA will be added to the waiting list by date and time received with the FUP preference. If an applicant referred for FUP is already active on the HCV waitlist, the preference will be given and the applicant will maintain their current position on the list. The waitlist for FUP will remain open until PCHA determines a sufficient number of pre-applications have been received.
The Family Unification Program is limited to the following populations:
- 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.
- Eligible youth who have attained at least 18 years and not more than 24 years of age and who have left foster care, or will leave foster care within 90 days, in accordance with the transition plan described in section 475(5)(H) of the Social Security Act and are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless at age 16 or older. Assistance for youth can not exceed 36 months.
