VHA’s HELP Center is excited to announce that it is now accepting letters of interest for the 2018-2019 AmeriCorps VISTA Project with our Homeless Services Cohort. (For those interested in the Affordable Housing Cohort, the LOI will be available in March 2018.) This is the fifth year that VHA has placed AmeriCorps VISTAs with local agencies to provide 12-months of capacity building support for communities in Virginia.

Applicant sites must be Virginia Housing Alliance members engaged in work to expand housing opportunity throughout Virginia. Examples of eligible agencies include Community Action agencies, nonprofit housing developers, local government housing and community development divisions, Planning District Commissions, housing authorities, Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs), Community Development Corporations, Community Development Financial Institutions, and other regional housing associations.

Here is the 2018-2019 Project Description and How to Apply document. The deadline for letters of interest is Friday, January 12, 2018 by 5:00 pm. Please submit letters to Emily Brown, VHA VISTA Program Manager at ebrown@vahousingalliance.org.

We’re looking forward to supporting your work with our next outstanding cohort of VHA AmeriCorps VISTA Members! For questions, please contact Hunter Snellings or Emily Brown.
