VISTA MOU & Cost Share

Once you have been approved to be a VISTA site, you will receive a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that you will need to sign detailing the conditions of the VISTA placement at your site.

The MOU details the responsibilities of the PRC, the site, and joint responsibilities. The cost share is also detailed in the MOU. The cost share is dependent upon what year your project is in, and is composed of training costs as well as support costs.

Year Training Cost Support Cost Total
1 $1,500 $2,500 $4,000
2 $1,500 $4,500 $6,000
3 $1,500 $6,000 $7,500
4 $1,500 $12,000 $13,500

The cost share amount increases each year as one of the primary missions of VISTA is capacity building and sustainability. The increase in cost share is so the community takes more ownership each year.
