National Association of Service and Conservation Corps Offers Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Mini-Grants

The National Association of Service and Conservation Corps (<a href=""></a>), in cooperation with the Corporation for National and Community Service, is offering mini-grants to support service projects as part of the 21st anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday (January 15, 2007). These mini-grants will support service activities designed to alleviate conditions of poverty in communities and engage disadvantaged youth.

NASCC encourages its members and outside organizations to apply for a mini-grant. NASCC will fund organizations that mobilize volunteers, especially disadvantaged youth, to undertake service activities to benefit impoverished communities.

NASCC service projects will: 1) Provide relief to a condition of poverty through a service project; 2) Mobilize a diverse group of volunteers with an emphasis on disadvantaged youth; 3) Develop new and existing partnerships with community organizations who will participate in the project; and 4) Provide educational and recruitment materials to project volunteers and the community at large.

NASCC will provide grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 each. Grants can be used to plan and carry out service activities directly related to the proposed project.

NASCC will accept applications on a rolling basis. Applications will be considered and approved on a first-come, first-served basis. NASCC’s ability to provide mini-grants to applicants is contingent upon funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service.
