With its re-authorization in 2013, VAWA now applies to all HUD, Rural Development, and IRS Section 42 (tax credit) housing developments. Although not “self-executing” because of its convergence with fair housing laws, housing providers can’t afford to take a “wait and see” attitude until agencies issue their final guidance. This course simplifies the current and pending rules and goes beyond VAWA with a review of relevant state laws and how these will impact management of both affordable and conventional housing. Students are also challenged to decide how they would respond to typical scenarios.
