Urge the Senate to pass the next COVID-19 relief package
The updated House-passed HEROES Act (H.R. 8406) provides investment in the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), includes a critical fix to the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) to maintain funding for victim services, and addresses the needs of non-citizen immigrant victims.
Survivors continue to face increased domestic violence as well as the severe impacts of the pandemic. Advocates on the frontlines need additional resources to ensure the safety of survivors and their staff.
Urge Congress to act now to pass a COVID-19 relief package that addresses the housing, economic, and physical and mental health needs of survivors of domestic and sexual violence and the advocates that serve them.
