Housing Resources for VISTAs relocating

Hey, awesome VISTA Leaders,

I am in need of assistance with finding housing resources for VISTAs that are relocating to serve. Finding cheap and safe housing is nearly impossible in the community that I serve in. Due to relocating military and navy personnel, many apartment places in my community are raising rent prices. 

My team of VISTAs, fellow VISTA Leader, and I are starting a VISTA Housing Committee. We will be contacting local nonprofits in the area and writing grants to see if we can either get a house donated or find places that will offer discounted rent prices? Has anyone done this before and, if so, how did you do it? Does anyone have any tips to help?

Thank you all for your time and service!
