VISTA Affordable Housing Preservation Project (VAHPP)
The VISTA project will seek to build the capacity of qualified nonprofit organizations that support tenants in privately-owned, HUD subsidized multifamily housing to form tenant associations to preserve and improve their homes as affordable housing. In its first year, the project expects to strengthen or form at least 60 tenant associations that meet HUD standards; to inform at least 6,000 low income tenants of their rights; and to commence the preservation or improvement of at least 6,000 at-risk apartments as decent, safe and affordable housing. 21 VISTA members placed at up to 13 host sites will contribute to the goals of the project by performing activities such as 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 6,000 homes over the two year course of the project. Project sites currently recruiting for a 4/12/21 start date are located in: Atlanta, GA; Detroit, MI; Little Rock, AR; Long Beach, CA; and Spokane, WA.
