NRCDV Publications
General Material
Published Date
October, 1999

Provides an excellent basic overview of federal rental housing programs for a domestic violence advocate (but it does not include housing issues affecting battered immigrant women or the Indian Housing Block Grant Program). The paper identifies key policy issues and trends in housing policy that are still relevant today. Key domestic violence policy issues are addressed through case examples and discussion questions for critical thinking. Specific advocacy interventions are reviewed. A glossary defines core housing terms. This paper is the eighth in a series of policy and practice papers from the Building Comprehensive Solutions to Domestic Violence initiative of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, a project of the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
