HUD Proposes Expanded Protections for Domestic Violence Survivors

Wednesday, March 25, 2015 - 7:00AM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) yesterday issued a new proposed rule to implement protections included in the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013). The rule would amend HUD’s regulations to fully protect against housing discrimination all of its residents who are survivors of domestic and dating violence, stalking and sexual assault—regardless of sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age. The VAWA 2013 reauthorization expands coverage to include nearly all HUD initiatives and other programs, including the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. Public comment can be made about the proposed rule for 60 days after it’s published in the Federal Register.
