H Domestic Violence Shelters - NA
 
(01/01/21 - 12/31/21)
Prior to approving a participant who resides in a domestic violence shelter, FAA staff must ensure the shelter is listed on the HEAplus institutions list. The Policy Support Team (PST) determines when the shelter meets all qualification requirements for domestic violence shelters. (See Qualification Requirements)
 
When a shelter has met the definition of a domestic violence shelter, the residents of that shelter are not considered residents of an institution and may be eligible for NA benefits.
 
When the PST has determined a shelter has met the definition of a domestic violence shelter, the shelter is listed in HEAplus. When a shelter is not listed in HEAplus, see Maintaining Institutions in HEAplus.
 
A participant who enters a shelter may have changed their Social Security number or name. When this is discovered, see Enumeration Overview.
