Community Outreach

VHDA’s Community Outreach Team works with local governments, nonprofits and housing agencies in all areas of Virginia to address the housing needs of underserved Virginians. The team supports high-priority state policy initiatives including community revitalization, homelessness and housing accessibility. Our work also links housing, economic development and transportation planning in support of the new Virginia economy.

Our team is involved in delivering technical assistance, and housing and community development training. We also facilitate grants that are designed to support housing planning activities and increase the capacity and business sustainability of Virginia’s Affordable Housing Delivery Network.

Each year, VHDA reinvests a portion of our net revenues into Virginia’s communities through REACH Virginia (Resources Enabling Affordable Community Housing in Virginia). This is a multifaceted resource that VHDA uses to support vital housing initiatives through our Homeownership, Rental and Community Outreach programs, including:

  • Affordable housing for lower-income households, the homeless and residents of high growth and/or high cost regions.
  • Accessible housing for seniors and people with disabilities.
  • Revitalization of older urban areas and preservation of small towns.
