NAHT Safe & Healthy Homes VISTA Project 
The National Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT) a tenant-led, membership coalition of tenant groups in privately-owned, federally assisted housing. NAHT is the only national tenants organization in the US. NAHT’s Safe & Healthy Homes VISTA project will seek to build the capacity of tenants in privately-owned, federally assisted multifamily housing to form tenant associations to preserve and improve affordable housing, improve health and safety outcomes in their communities, and increase resident awareness of their rights and responsibilities, including recovery from COVID-19. In its first year, the project expects to strengthen or form at least 45 tenant associations that meet HUD standards; to inform at least 4,500 low income tenants of their rights; and to commence the preservation or improvement of at least 4,500 at-risk apartments as decent, safe and affordable housing. 15 VISTA members placed at up to 12 host sites will perform activities such as doorknocking and distributing information to tenants in their homes; helping tenants convene building-level meetings to identify concerns; and assisting tenants to meet with owners, HUD and others to save and improve 4,500 homes per year over the five year course of the project. Project sites currently recruiting for an August 2 start date are located in: Boston, MA; New York City; Chicago; Syracuse, NY; Newark, NJ; Nashua, New Hampshire; Little Rock, AR; and Long Beach, CA
