HUD’s Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Final Rule expands housing protections for survivors of domestic abuse, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in Continuum of Care (CoC) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) projects. The Rule was created to help ensure all individuals have access to a safe home without the fear of violence and to reduce the risk of homelessness among survivors.
Please join HUD and Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) to discuss implementation considerations in ESG and CoC Programs with two CoCs – Louisiana Balance of State and Austin/Travis County. The webinar will provide strategies for quality implementation of the VAWA Final Rule, specifically targeted to recipients of ESG and CoC funds. Learn more about:
- Strategies on implementing quality emergency transfer plans
- Methods on improving quick, low barrier access to safe housing options for survivors
- Partnerships with victim services providers and domestic violence coalitions that can assist in implementing housing protections for survivors
