Supported Housing for Families and Young Adults (SHFYA) 2009-2010

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 have been extended so that they are scheduled to end on November 30, 2010. This is the fifth annual funding cycle, which began on 09/01/09 and is supported by $2.5 M of the SFY 2009-10 appropriation.

The SHFYA appropriation was increased to $5.0M in SFY 2006-07, which allowed for a new procurement for additional SHFYA sponsors. Contracts resulting from the increase of $2.5M commenced on March 1, 2007, and the current funding cycle ends on February 28, 2011. Not all SHFYA funds were obligated as the demand did not exceed the additional $2.5 M. Consequently, an additional procurement was initiated in May 2008 making available the remaining $300,000. The resultant contracts from this procurement commenced in March 2009. The multiple-year contract is also scheduled to terminate on February 28, 2011.
