Vietnamese American Community Center

VACC Project Task Force
The San Jose Redevelopment Agency and the City of San Jose selected 21 community members to be part of an exciting project that will engage the community in a process to create recommendations for programs and services at a proposed Vietnamese American Community Center (VACC).

The objective of the VACC project is to create a community center that celebrates diversity, fosters belonging, and brings vital services to this region. Many of the programs will focus on the Vietnamese American community, yet the VACC is intended to serve all residents of the region.

The Task Force is a working group of community volunteers. They will gather community input about future services and programs for the VACC.

View a list of VACC Project Task Force members.

The goals of the Task Force include:

  • Listening to the community and building consensus on the purpose of the Center, and on what programming and services it should have
  • Taking the input received from the community and turning it into specific recommendations on how the Center should be set up and what programming it should include.

NOTE: The recent State raid of Redevelopment funds, combined with a lagging economy, has led to significantly reduced funding levels, with several projects put on hold as a result. The VACC project, being one of them, is on hold until FY2013-2014. The VACC Project Task Force will conclude its work for the initial phase of this project in
February 2010.

Updates on the project will be posted to this site.
