AmeriCorps VISTA - Project MOVE Buffalo cover
Description The City of Buffalo was awarded a grant worth $900,000 that will bring 13 AmeriCorps VISTA members to the city where they will work to eradicate poverty and engage local citizens in community service.

The AmeriCorps VISTA program was created in 1965 by the late president John F. Kennedy and is designed to fight poverty in America’s urban areas, essentially acting as a “domestic peace corps.”

The program creates opportunities for individuals to fight poverty in low-income areas by engaging all types of Americans in service. VISTA members do this by encouraging volunteer service at the local level, generating the commitment of private sector resources, and strengthening local agencies and organizations that serve low-income communities.
