VAWA Housing Protections - Implementation within ESG and CoC Programs Webinar


November 27, 2018 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST



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 provides a full overview of the rule, specifically targeted to recipients of ESG and CoC funds.
