Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

The Violence against Women Act of 2013 (VAWA) provides special protections for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking who are applying for or receiving assistance under a Housing Choice Voucher program.  Protections are not limited to women but cover victims regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation.  If state or local laws provide greater protection for such victims, those laws apply along with VAWA. Under VAWA, BRHP allows tenants who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking to request an emergency transfer from the tenant’s current unit to another unit.
