Funding Announcement

We are pleased to announce a new cycle of funding for the Learn and Serve America: School-Based Program (LSA:SBP).  Learn and Serve America provides opportunities for our country’s school-aged youth to serve their communities by integrating service into students’ formal academic experience. LSA:SBP is funded at the national level by the Corporation for National and Community Service, and is implemented by the New Jersey Department of State in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Education.

The LSA:SBP is, therefore, offering a two-year continuation grant to support the implementation of a LSA:SBP.  This Notice of Grant Opportunity (NGO) is for the grant period of September 1, 2010 through August 31, 2011.  This is the first year of a two-year continuation grant program.

Up to $14,000 will be awarded to a maximum of 15 programs for the first contract period totaling $210,000 statewide.  All allocations are based on a thorough evaluation of each proposal and availability of federal funding from the Corporation on National and Community Service, which requires a dollar for dollar local cash and/or in-kind match for grants. The LSA:SBP grants, of up to $14,000, is open to all LEAs (including Charter Schools) but limited to those that have not received or have not successfully completed a LSA:SBP two year funding cycle during the 1996 to 2010 fiscal years. All proposals are due to the LSA:SBP no later than 4:00 p.m. on June 9, 2010.
