VAWA’s Housing Protections are Still in Effect!
Further, long-term funding for VAWA’s grant programs is not in apparent jeopardy. Both the House and Senate included funding for the grants in their FY 2019 bills despite lack of passage of a reauthorization bill. However, Congress’s reauthorization of these grants is important to ensure that appropriators will include this funding every year with certainty.
Programs with VAWA funding will continue despite the shutdown, but payment requests from programs will be delayed. These delays put significant financial strain on local programs.
Please stay tuned for a webinar hosted by NHLP on VAWA’s housing protections.
