Section 8 Family Unification Program. Section 8�FUP is designed to provide housing assistance to households whose lack of adequate housing is a primary cause of the separation or imminent separation of a child or children from their families. Section 8�FUP accomplishes this by providing funding to public housing agencies that allocate the money to special Section 8 certificates for the families in danger of separation. Recipients of the certificates must otherwise be eligible for the Section 8 program. The local public welfare agency must also certify that the lack of adequate housing is a primary reason that the family�s child(ren) may be placed in out-of-home care or may be prevented from returning to the family.
