About the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) "" What Section 8 Landlords/Owners Need to Know
On March 7, 2013, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act 2013 (VAWA 2013) was signed into law. VAWA 2013 protects individuals who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking, regardless of sex, gender identity or sexual orientation, from being denied housing assistance on the basis of, or as a direct result of, the applicant or resident being a victim. A final rule, effective December 2016, implements the requirements of VAWA 2013. The law was enacted to ensure that Housing Authorities and Landlords/Ownersof HUD-Assisted Housing (Section 8) are consistent with HUD's nondiscrimination and equal opportunity requirements. To ensure that owners/landlords are compliant with this VAWA Final Ruling, please see the NOTICE OF LANDLORD RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT (VAWA), as issued by US HUD.
