Supported Housing for Families and Young Adults (SHFYA) 2008-2009

Appropriation Level: $5,000,000

The purpose of the Supported Housing for Families and Young Adults (SHFYA) Program is to provide comprehensive support services designed to stabilize, enhance employability, and/or enhance self-sufficiency for those residents (eligible families and young adults between the ages of 18 and 25) of supported housing who are formerly homeless, at risk of homelessness, and/or have exceeded or risk exceeding the TANF time limits. The SHFYA program has two contract cycles. Though awards are allocated annually, the program operates through multi-year contracts. Contracts resulting from the SFY 2005-06 $2.5M appropriation commenced on September 1, 2005 and were scheduled to end on August 31, 2008. They were extended for a fourth and fifth annual funding cycle which has been extended and will end on 11/30/10. The fourth cycle ran from 9/1/08 through 8/31/09 and was supported by $2.5M of the SFY 2008-09 appropriation.

The SHFYA appropriation was increased to $5.0M in SFY 2006-07, which allowed for a new procurement for additional SHFYA sponsors, bringing the number of contractors to 63. Contracts resulting from the increase of $2.5M commenced on March 1, 2007. The third funding cycle, supported by SFY 2008-09 funds, began on March 1, 2009 and ended on February 29, 2010.
