Virginia Housing Alliance VISTA - RRPDC
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.

Member Duties : The goal of the VHA VISTA project is to demonstrate (metro) Richmond’s capacity in support services to de-risk investment intended for affordable housing development. The project will create a framework to understand and evaluate the wide-range of services available and able to serve. The VISTA will work on a project to “map” services available in the Richmond Region (Planning District 15) for individuals and families who are vulnerably housed. The purpose of the service map is to better understand the array of services available to people with very low, low, and moderate incomes (0-80% AMI) and who meet criteria based on various definitions of status. The project will require partnership with many anchor organizations in the Richmond Region who will guide the scope of the data collection, organization, and presentation: City of Richmond’s Office of Community Wealth Building, The United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg, Richmond Memorial Health Foundation and more.
