Posted by Corporation for National and Community Service on September 21, 2015

We are happy to announce an RSVP Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for two grants in Pennsylvania, covering Beaver County and Chester County respectively.

The deadline to apply is November 3rd, with a strongly-encouraged Notice of Intent to Apply by September 29th.

Here is a link to the full NOFO web page, which includes instructions, FAQs, and information about technical assistance calls:

The Pennsylvania State Office of the Corporation for National and Community Service announces an opportunity, subject to availability of resources, to develop new AmeriCorps*VISTA projects in Pennsylvania. This process is open to organizations that are not current VISTA sponsors. Please share this notice with your networks, and contact us at with any questions.

AmeriCorps*VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a full-time, national service program for individuals interested in developing lasting solutions to the problems of poverty in the United States. AmeriCorps*VISTA members serve with community and faith-based non-profit organizations, Indian Tribes, and local governments to develop and expand services and programs that help bring low-income individuals out of poverty.

Public organizations such as state and local governments, Indian Tribes, and non-profit private organizations can apply to be VISTA sponsors. Please note that eligible non-profit private organizations are not limited to those with IRS 501(c) (3) status, but rather all organizations with IRS 501(c) status that focus on anti-poverty community development; organizations that focus solely on advocacy and lobbying are not eligible.
