Question about State/National programs?

I am currently a Vista serving out my term but am feeling like I would of had more fun doing a State/National program. After checking the americorps website it seems as though vista programs are the only ones reimbursed for travel arrangements. This is important to me since I'd like to stay out west. I traveled from Indiana to Utah for my vista assignment with all my expenses covered.

Do State/National programs not offer to pay for travel expenses like Vista? If not, what is the point of listing the projects on a nationally known website? The majority of people would not travel to a job across the country to make an impoverished salary.
