Information for Survivors

These updates include information about survivors’ rights under Illinois P.A. 99-441, which prevents local governments from enacting ordinances that penalize survivors of domestic or sexual violence, the Violence Against Women Act, the Fair Housing Act, and the Illinois Safe Homes Act.

We are also in the final stages of creating an interactive, responsive webpage to help guide survivors and advocates through the comprehensive protections for domestic and sexual violence survivors who live in rental housing. The website will be launched in early 2017.
