What does it mean to have a victim/survivor accepted into the transitional housing program?

This depends on how your agency defines acceptance into your Transitional Housing program.  For example, most agencies provide acceptance only after the client is housed and support services are offered.  Some agencies accept clients upon receiving a TH application.  Other agencies may have several different funding streams to consider upon receiving an application, before determining which one best meets the survivor’s described needs and provide acceptance to the OVW Transitional Housing program.  Please seek out additional guidance from your OVW Program Specialist if you need assistance with making this distinction.
