Understanding the requirements and protections of VAWA in covered housing programs

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a federal law originally enacted in 1994 which was reauthorized last year, and today protects individuals who are survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity. It includes protections for survivors who are applying for or residing in covered housing programs.

Reauthorized in 2022, the Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Office of HUD now accepts and investigates complaints alleging violation of VAWA using it’s Fair Housing Act complaint processes. In addition to FHEO, HUDs Fair Housing Assistance Program (FHAP) agency partners also accept VAWA complaints.
