Manuals, Guidebooks, and Reports

Protections Delayed: State Housing Finance Agency Compliance with the Violence Against Women Act (2017)

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provides survivors of domestic and sexual violence with strong housing protections and prohibits housing providers from using incidents of violence as grounds for evicting the survivor. Even though the 2013 VAWA reauthorization explicitly required that Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) providers comply with VAWA, the Department of the Treasury has issued no regulations or guidance on implementation for the LIHTC program. This new report finds that the inaction of the part of the U.S. Department of the Treasury has led to significant state-by-state variation in the implementation of VAWA protections in the LIHTC program. This, in turn, has a substantial impact on level of protection afforded to survivors.

Guidebook on Consumer & Economic Civil Legal Advocacy for Survivors (2017)

Produced in partnership with a cadre of on-the-ground advocates, attorneys, and organizational partnerships, the Center for Survivor Agency & Justice's Guidebook offers concrete consumer and economic civil legal remedies, as well as nonlegal advocacy strategies, through the lens of survivor centered advocacy – rooted in the experiences of survivors who are living in poverty. The publication includes a chapter by NHLP on the housing protections of domestic and sexual violence survivors.





State Law Compendium: Housing Rights of Domestic Violence Survivors (2016)

This Compendium compiles state and local laws that affect domestic violence survivors’ housing rights. It is designed to serve as a starting point for advocates seeking to conduct research on the housing protections that their state and local laws offer for domestic violence survivors. Examples of such protections include early lease termination provisions for domestic violence survivors, lock change laws, and affirmative defenses for evictions related to acts of domestic violence committed against a tenant.

The updated compendium includes laws enacted as of October 2016. If you have questions or comments, please contact Karlo Ng at kng@nhlp.org.


Maintaining Safe and Stable Housing for Domestic Violence Survivors (2012)

This Manual focuses on the rights of survivors who are facing loss of housing, who need to improve the safety of their housing, or who need to relocate. Some of the topics addressed include changing the locks; breaking the lease; defending against evictions and subsidy terminations; seeking remedies for housing discrimination; reasonable accommodations for survivors with disabilities; and the housing protections of the Violence Against Women Act. (This manual has not been updated to reflect the Violence Against Women Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013). For a summary of VAWA 2013's housing protections, see this article.)

Access to the Appendices of the Manual is limited to legal services programs and Office on Violence against Women grantees. These programs should contact Karlo Ng at kng@nhlp.org to obtain the Appendices.

Assisting Survivors of Domestic Violence in Applying for Housing (2010)

This Manual provides a comprehensive review of domestic violence survivors’ rights in applying for housing. It includes information on the subsidized housing application process, common barriers to housing that survivors face, and strategies for challenging denials of housing. (This manual has not been updated to reflect the Violence Against Women Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013). For a summary of VAWA 2013's housing protections, see this article.)

Access to the Appendices of the Manual is limited to legal services programs and Office on Violence against Women grantees. These programs should contact Karlo Ng at kng@nhlp.org to obtain the Appendices.
