Membership dues are the main source of funding for our advocacy work, which is more important than ever.

Your membership support is critical for VHA to continue our efforts to increase housing opportunity and end homelessness across the Commonwealth. This past year has been particularly challenging; however, we have been able to:

  • Secure historic new funding for the Virginia Housing Trust Fund, Permanent Supportive Housing and Eviction Prevention/Diversion Program.

  • Administer $150,000 in rapid response grant funding to direct services providers across Virginia to help respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

  • Advocate for Federal and state housing resources to respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

  • Administer 14 AmeriCorps Vista members at housing non-profits across the state.

Your support as a member of VHA also enables us to keep you up to date with the latest housing news throughout the year. We frequently send out alerts with important policy updates, information about training opportunities and events, and opportunities to engage in advocacy.
