Virginia Housing Alliance VISTA - project:HOMES
 
 
 
The Virginia Housing Alliance (VHA), state and national partners, and our service provider partners across Virginia are working to expand affordable housing opportunities through education, advocacy, training, and capacity building. This VISTA project provides the human capital necessary to provide on the ground support to agencies developing, providing or otherwise supporting affordable housing, while engaging VISTA Members in meeting the need for and challenges to affordable housing. VISTA Members are placed in agencies across the state and provide key leadership, guidance, and direction to help VHA’s local partners achieve greater impact for their clients. Specific project objectives are as follows: (1) Develop resources to increase development capacity and enhance organizational sustainability; (2) Enhance community engagement in affordable housing efforts; (3) Improve data quality and use in decision-making; and (4) Promote best practices in affordable housing development.
