In this pre-recorded webinar, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) partnered with Diana “Dede” Yazzie-Devine, President and CEO of Native American Connections, an organization improving the lives of individuals and families through Native American culturally appropriate behavioral health, affordable housing, and community development services. Here, our expert presenter will discuss how the braiding of both federal and long-term, sustainable funding can be achieved to acquire, develop, and operate high quality housing communities.

Survivors need flexible, affordable, and safe housing options to achieve safety and lasting stability. Many survivors turn to their friends, family, and faith leaders for housing support.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, federal, state, and local governments have mandated eviction and utility moratoriums to prevent homelessness and slow the spread of the virus. This tenants’ rights landscape has been ever-changing.
