Resources to Address the Housing Needs of Survivors in the CARES Act


The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) provides a broad array of resources and protections, including unemployment insurance for laid-off workers. The CARES Act provides more than $12 billion in funding for HUD programs and eviction moratoriums on federally-backed mortgages, and $45 million in funding for the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA). Domestic violence organizations can apply for new funds, outlined in this fact sheet, and should be aware of additional resources in their communities and protections for low-income renters, including survivors.
