Funding Available to Engage Older Americans in High-Impact Service

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) recently launched its 2013 RSVP grant competition, encouraging nonprofits and public agencies across the country to learn how RSVP can help them increase their impact by engaging volunteers 55 years and older in service.

RSVP, one of three signature programs in Senior Corps, is a proven, flexible, and successful program with 40 years of experience in harnessing the skills and experience of older Americans in meeting critical community needs. The program helps nonprofits, higher education institutions, Indian tribes, and public agencies expand their impact by engaging experienced and committed volunteers.

Eligible applicants include faith-based and secular nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, state education agencies, Indian tribes, and local government entities including counties and cities. The draft 2013 RSVP funding notice, FAQs, and other information is available here.
