Volunteer Generation Fund

On March 25, the Corporation for National and Community Service announced the grant competition for the Volunteer Generation Fund, a new Serve America Act program designed to strengthen the ability of organizations to recruit, retain, and manage volunteers to have a sustained impact in local communities.  The competition makes available $4 million for state service commissions to develop effective approaches to increase the number of volunteers, strengthen the capacity of volunteer connector organizations to recruit and retain volunteers, and develop strategies to effectively use volunteers to solve local problems.  Applications are due on May 18.  More information on the Volunteer Generation Fund can be found here.
