HUD Proposes Expanded Protections for Domestic Violence Survivors
HUD recently proposed a new rule to implement the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 for nearly all those who reside in HUD-assisted housing. An earlier, 2005 version of the legislation covered only public housing and Section 8 residents.
The proposed rule would extend protection to several other programs, including the LIHTC program and the Housing Trust Fund programs. The rule would expand HUD’s authority to protect survivors of domestic and dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault.
