May 21, 2015: HUD’s Proposed Rule Implementing VAWA 2013
On April 1, 2015, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a proposed rule regarding the implementation of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013). VAWA 2013 features expanded protections for survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking who are accessing and maintaining federally subsidized housing, including HUD programs. The proposed rule amends a series of HUD regulations that govern the HUD programs covered by VAWA 2013. The rule further offers a model emergency transfer plan, a VAWA housing rights notice, and a VAWA self-certification form to be used by survivors across all HUD programs. This webinar provides a summary and an analysis of key parts of the proposed rule.
