ARRA: Extending the Unemployment Insurance Safety Net to Victims of Domestic Violence (2009)

In response to ARRA many states changed their laws to expand access to unemployment insurance benefits to victims of domestic violence. Unfortunately, over 15 states have yet to take the opportunity to extend eligibility (in the ARRA or other contexts), thus denying many victims, already in precarious situations, an important source of financial stability as they try to
escape the violence in their lives.
