HUD Protections Under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)


By: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

Under VAWA, applicants and tenants of certain HUD rental assistance programs may not be denied housing, evicted, or have their housing assistance terminated because they have experienced domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Additionally, survivors are able to ask for an emergency housing transfer for safety reasons. This website features FAQs on housing protections, forms, and resources for survivors.
