TThe webinar is being offered in response to requests for more information regarding affordable housing options for domestic violence survivors and will cover frequently asked questions regarding the programs, including who is eligible for the programs; what type of assistance is available; how clients can apply; protections for clients in the programs; and helpful resources.
