Registration has been closed for HUD and CSH’s VAWA Housing Protections - Implementation within ESG and CoC Programs Webinar on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 due to the large number of registrants. If you have already registered please be sure to log on to the webinar early; registration is capped at the first 500 participants. If more than one person from your organization is registered we ask that you log on from one computer to help make space for more registrants.

During this webinar, HUD and CSH discuss HUD’s Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Final Rule which implements the requirements of the 2013 reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act for HUD covered housing programs, including the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) and Continuum of Care (CoC) Programs. 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. Learn more about:

  • The protections and rights outlined in the rule including the protection from refusal of assistance, termination of assistance, or eviction based on being a survivor
  • A survivor’s right to an emergency transfer when there is a safe and available unit
  • The option to bifurcate a lease to help keep a survivor safely housed

The webinar will provide a full overview of the rule, specifically targeted to recipients of ESG and CoC funds.

The webinar will also be recorded and posted to the HUD Exchange training page for those that were not able to register or to enter the webinar. The slides will be also be available for download on the HUD Exchange after the webinar.

If you have questions about VAWA as relates to CoC and ESG, please submit a question to the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal.
