August 1, 2005 DHCD Memo: Domestic Violence Priority Status


"... The major thrust of this memorandum explains the verification that LHAs may require of applicants requesting Emergency Case Status because of an Abusive Situation, and makes clear that an LHA may not insist on any one form of verification, such as a restraining order against the abuser..." "In addition to notifying LHAs of the reissuance of that important memorandum from 1996, the purpose of this memorandum is to inform LHAs of the position that DHCD has taken in response to the [GCSDV's Housing and Homelessness] Committee's recommendations regarding tenants and applicants who are survivors of domestic or sexual violence, and our intent to ensure that LHAs act accordingly."
