2021 VOCA Training: Special Relief for Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault: Housing Issues (Webinar)
June 3, 2021 - 1 Hour
This session focused on housing issues commonly encountered by victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Topics discussed include the current status and application of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in subsidized tenancies and strategies for how to confront issues which arise in market rate/private housing tenancies, where VAWA does not apply. Also, this session includes a review of a "good case" to highlight how creative advocacy can be utilized to protect and benefit victims dealing with housing-related problems.
