VISTA Affordable Housing Preservation Project
 
 
 
This project will build the capacity of tenant associations in eligible Project-based Section 8 U. S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD)-assisted properties to increase tenants’ knowledge of their rights, responsibilities, and options for preserving their homes and improving their communities. The project aims to: (1) increase tenant outreach and training capacity of qualified local nonprofit organizations in at least 15 cities and (2) help tenants organize and save or improve eligible Section 8 communities which house more than 18,000 families. VISTA members will build the capacity of tenant organizations through outreach, education, leadership development, and legal aid over the two-year project. We have Legal Fellow openings in: Cincinnati, OH, Little Rock, AR, Orlando, FL, Los Angeles, CA, Alexandria, VA, Chicago, IL, and St. Paul, MN.
