New VAWA Resources Announced

Posted On: February 2, 2023

New VAWA resources are available from HUD.

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) prohibits housing discrimination for survivors of:

  • domestic violence
  • dating violence
  • sexual assault
  • stalking

The updated VAWA resources include the following:

“No one should have to choose between maintaining housed [sic] and staying safe.” said Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “We are making these protections clear on HUD’s website, so landlords are aware of our requirements and survivors know their rights.”

As part of the VAWA resources, HUD published a Notice of Funding Opportunity. It provides up to $5 million for Technical Assistance Providers to provide:

  • VAWA training,
  • technical assistance, and
  • support to housing providers, grantees, and other stakeholders.

Demetria L. McCain is HUD’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO). She highlights why the VAWA resources are so important.

“FHEO is committed to protecting the rights of VAWA survivors and their families.”
