Funders Together to End Homelessness is partnering with the Domestic Violence & Housing Technical Assistance Consortium (DVHTAC) to host a 3-part webinar series highlighting the intersection of domestic and sexual violence and housing and homelessness. We encourage funders to register for the entire series, which is designed to help you build strong partnerships and effective community responses to ending homelessness for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Webinar 2: Housing Rights for Survivors: How Public Policy Can Address Housing Instability for Domestic and Sexual Assault Survivors
Systems change requires policies that address housing instability. This webinar will cover federal and state law policy examples that provide important protections for survivors of domestic violence who seek to access or maintain rental housing.
Attend this webinar to learn about housing scenarios that arise for domestic and sexual violence survivors, including obstacles posed by landlords in the admissions process; evictions due to domestic violence; the issue of nuisance ordinances and crime-free housing policies and remedies to enable safety such as early lease terminations, lock changes, lease bifurcations, and emergency transfers. We’ll address these scenarios by examining federal and state housing laws and policies that provide specific safeguards for survivors and share resources on federal and state housing laws that funders can support.

About the Domestic Violence and Housing Technical Assistance Consortium
The Consortium, launched in 2015, provides training, technical assistance, and resource development at the critical intersection of homelessness and domestic violence and sexual assault. Funded by a partnership between the U.S. Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Consortium supports a TA Team of four national organizations: Collaborative Solutions, the National Alliance for Safe Housing, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. The Consortium works collaboratively to improve policies and practices that strengthen efforts to build safe and supportive housing options for domestic and sexual violence survivors.
