Survivors of domestic and sexual violence face a number of serious housing problems related to the acts of violence committed against them. This training will discuss the various rights and protections available to survivors of domestic violence including State and Federal laws. We will also touch upon the changes made recently to VAWA protections. This training is meant to serve as a primer for attorneys interested in learning more about the laws passed to improve the safety of domestic violence survivors and protect them from being evicted because of the criminal acts of their abusers.
