Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

VAWA provides protection for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. VAWA protections are not only available to women, but are available equally to all individuals regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. You don't have to be married or living with the abuser to be protected by VAWA. VAWA protections cover tenants as defined under applicable program regulations. VAWA protections also cover applicants when they are applying for admission to a housing program.
