OVW Fiscal Year 2022 Transitional Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking Solicitation: This program is authorized by 34 U.S.C. § 12351. The Transitional Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking Program (Transitional Housing Program (CFDA 16.736)) supports programs that provide 6-24 months of transitional housing with support services for victims who are homeless or in need of transitional housing or other housing assistance, as a result of a situation of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking; and for whom emergency shelter services or other crisis intervention services are unavailable or insufficient. The term "homeless" means an individual who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence, and includes an individual who is sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason. An individual who is living in a motel, hotel, trailer park, or campground due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations are also considered homeless. Persons living in emergency or transitional shelter are also examples of homelessness. Abandoned individuals in a hospital or awaiting foster care placement are also considered homeless. An individual who has a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings, or migratory children (as defined in 20 U.S.C. § 6399) who qualify as homeless under 34 U.S.C. § 12473 because the children are living in circumstances described in this paragraph, are also considered to be homeless. (See 34 U.S.C. §§ 12291(a)(12), 12473(6).) The phrase "in need of transitional housing or other housing assistance" means losing one's current housing or otherwise needing housing assistance as a result of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Survivors need not be "homeless" as defined above to be "in need of transitional housing or other housing assistance," nor do they need to be "fleeing" domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. They do, however, need to be individuals for whom "emergency shelter services or other crisis intervention services are unavailable or insufficient" to be eligible for assistance under the Transitional Housing Program. (See 34 U.S.C. § 12351(a)(2).) For example, a sexual assault survivor whose current housing situation is no longer viable because of circumstances related to the assault - and for whom there are no sexual assault-focused emergency shelter options in the community - is eligible immediately for transitional housing assistance.
