VAWA Implementation e-Briefing Next Week

VAWA 2013 Implementation
A NAHRO Professional Development e-Briefing

Next Tuesday, May 16, 2017, 1:30 – 3:00 pm EDT

Last November, HUD published a long-awaited final rule that provides expanded housing protections for survivors of violence by fully codifying the provisions of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013) into HUD regulations. At its core, VAWA 2013 prohibits HUD housing providers from denying or terminating housing assistance on the basis that an applicant or tenant is a survivor of violence.

Join NAHRO‚Äôs in-house policy experts as they discuss compliance with the final rule and the requirements for completing an emergency transfer plan and providing emergency transfers. HUD’s deadline to implement a VAWA Emergency Transfer Plan is June 14, 2017.

Just $95 for NAHRO Members!

Online registration will close Monday, May 15 at 11:59 pm EDT.
