STTARS HUD Consultation Guidance Document
On August 16, 2022, HUD issued a Dear Tribal Leader Letter regarding implementation of the Violence Against Women Act. The letter acknowledged the survivor-centered provisions included in VAWA (2005, 2013, and 2022) regarding housing. For information regarding the timeline of changes to the Act, please read the STTARS VAWA Policy Brief (link), which is attached to this document. In March of 2022, VAWA was reauthorized to include expanded housing protections for survivors. It also included the requirement that HUD promulgates rules regarding the implementation of the VAWA 2022 requirements within two (2) years of enactment.
