This webinar will offer strategies to address common housing obstacles that survivors face, including evictions, emergency transfers, admission denials, and lease bifurcations in LIHTC units. The webinar will provide an overview of housing protections for survivors applying for and living in LIHTC units. Presenters will discuss survivors’ housing rights under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and related laws. They will also briefly cover protections for tenants under federal and local eviction moratoriums.
