The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) requires PHAs to describe any goals, objectives, policies, or programs that enable the PHA to serve the needs of child and adult victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. PBCHA supports the goals and objectives of VAWA and will continually assess programs and initiatives to ensure they further its requirements. Policies in the Public Housing Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP) and the Housing Choice Voucher Administrative Plan are updated to reflect compliance with the provisions of VAWA. Information regarding VAWA is given to all public housing residents and Housing Choice Voucher program participants.
