Supported Housing for Families and Young Adults (SHFYA) – SHFYA funds are provided for services and expenses related to a supportive housing program for families and/or young adults age 18 to 25, who are eligible for benefits under the State plan for the Federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant, whose incomes do not exceed 200 percent of the Federal poverty level and, unless in receipt of public assistance, whose participation in such a program would not constitute assistance under Federal TANF regulations.
