The Maine VISTA Project is a statewide AmeriCorps VISTA program that builds capacity and sustainability of nonprofit and faith-based organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies to reduce poverty in Maine communities.  VISTA members build capacity in their placement sites, also known as Host Sites, to increase services to individuals living in poverty in one of these focus areas of the Corporation for National & Community Service:  Economic Opportunity, Education, Healthy Futures, and Veterans & Military Families.

The Maine VISTA Project provides VISTA resources to organizations located in Maine for a maximum of three terms of VISTA member service.  (A VISTA service term is twelve months.)  Host Sites must develop a three-year plan VISTA project plan and provide cash and in-kind resources to support VISTA members serving with their organizations.

The Maine VISTA Project is sponsored by the Maine Commission for Community Service in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service.
