This is an essential tool for domestic violence advocates involved with individual and systemic housing advocacy. The chapter supports local public housing authority preferences for victims of domestic violence, including outlining relevant federal law and regulations. The chapter includes types of evidence of abuse (which is broad), mitigating "negative" rental histories due to domestic violence and sensitivity regarding confidential information. Supportive transfer policies as alternatives to eviction are strongly encouraged. Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are also encouraged to support battered immigrant victims by providing referrals for immigration assistance.
