Domestic violence is the number one cause of homelessness for women and often causes victims and their children to see their housing at risk. This presentation will discuss the various housing protections for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault extended via the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and by state law. This will include HUD’s guidelines for the implementation of VAWA 2013 and updates to the law at the state level. The presentation will also discuss how victims can protect themselves and their property by way of civil protection orders.
