HEARTH Act Regulations and Domestic Violence


In May 2009, Congress passed the HEARTH Act (Public Law 111-22, title IV of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11371 et seq.)) to update and reauthorize the federal McKinney-Vento homelessness programs. The law made significant changes and has required substantial guidance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAPS) office. This piece provides a summary of the status of the regulations, links to NNEDV’s comments on regulations and highlights key issues for domestic violence victims and advocates.
