VAWA 2013 and 24 C.F.R. § 5.2005(e) establishes that victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking may be entitled to an emergency transfer pursuant to each covered housing provider’s emergency transfer plan. All covered housing providers, regardless of size, are subject to the ETP requirements, including providers of Housing Choice Vouchers. Under this provision, each covered housing provider shall have adopted and implemented an Emergency Transfer Plan (“ETP”) based upon HUD’s model ETP. Plans must be adopted by June 14, 2017.
