Legal Fellow: Tenant Engagement and Community Development
 
 
 
This project will build the capacity of tenants in eligible Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-assisted properties to increase opportunities for tenants and engage them regarding their rights, responsibilities, and options. 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 of RAD housing to address community economic and social needs. 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: Indianapolis, IN and Baltimore, MD.
