The Corporation for National and Community Service would like to make you aware of the RSVP 2014 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). CNCS anticipates it will award more than $14 million to local organizations that will sponsor RSVP programs. The competition is expected to yield more than 92,000 senior volunteers who will serve in CNCS focus areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.
“Our country and our communities need the skills and talents of all of its citizens,” said Wendy Spencer, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. “Baby boomers and other older adults are an excellent resource for local nonprofits, faith-based institutions, public agencies, and others.” RSVP funding opportunities are available in 270 specific geographic regions in 45 states. Eligible organizations include nonprofit organizations, faith-based and higher education institutions, Indian tribes, and local public agencies, including city and county governments. The 2014 RSVP NOFO, FAQs, and additional information are available at www.nationalservice.gov/RSVPCompetition. Letters of intent to apply are due on August 9, 2013. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, September 10, 2013, at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
