More Victims of Domestic Violence Eligible for Legal Services Assistance under VAWA 2006

The Legal Services Corporation has issued program guidance on the significant changes impacting both client eligibility for services and the use of LSC funds to support those services pursuant to the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act of 2006.  The Act expands the scope of services that LSAC grantees can provide to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking and certain other crimes, regardless of the immigration status of the victims.
