This training is designed to educate DV service providers on the federal fair housing protections, 2013 VAWA implementation in housing, and current fair housing trends and how they can be used to promote DV survivors’ access to housing. The presentation covers what constitutes housing discrimination and the federally and local protected classes as well as recent HUD guidance. It also provides an outline of the housing protections for survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking outlined in the 2013 reauthorization of VAWA. Finally, the training will include a discussion of how service providers can best advocate for survivors who are experiencing housing discrimination.
