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. *PLEASE INDICATE IN YOUR PERSONAL STATEMENT WHETHER YOU ARE WILLING OR INTERESTED IN RELOCATION.
