HUD Issues Notice on VAWA 2013

On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a notice in the Federal Register on the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) 2013.  The notice provides an overview of VAWA 2013, and includes a comparison between what the requirements were under the previous statute, and what the law mandates for owners going forward.  HUD reminds the industry that VAWA extends beyond the Section 8 and public housing programs to now cover the Section 202 and 811 programs, the Section 236 and Section 221(d)(3) mortgage insurance programs, the HOME program, and the low income housing tax credit program. 

HUD is giving the industry the opportunity to submit comments in response to this notice.  All comments are due by October 7, 2013.  HUD provides instruction on how to submit a comment both manually and electronically.  You can read the entire notice by clicking on VAWA 2013.
