Corporation for National and Community Service provide grants to promote volunteerism

Established in 1971 and now one of the largest senior volunteer programs in the nation, RSVP offers a diverse range of volunteer activities that serve communities to create measurable impact, benefit volunteers through the service experience, and create community capacity. Senior Corps RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to a maximum of 40 hours.

Through this competition, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) seeks to increase the impact of national service in specific geographic service areas (see Appendix A for the full list of available opportunities). In order to carry out Congress’s intent and to maximize the impact of investment in national service, CNCS has the following Focus Areas: Disaster Services; Economic Opportunity; Education; Environmental Stewardship; Healthy Futures; and Veterans and Military Families.
