This is going to be a fantastic year! We are on the brink of several funding proposals and opportunities, including:
1. A NOFA for Learn and Serve will soon be released and they are encouraging partners to be pre-identified. In the past we have been able to pass through funding with Learn and Serve grants to ORCC members. We will begin the partner identification this month beginning with the below call.
2. We will soon be releasing a NOFA for our AmeriCorps*VISTA program placing full-time volunteers on campuses to coordinate engagement efforts. The volunteers would serve beginning in August 2009, and campus sites will be identified in early 2009.
3. We have additional slots available through our Students In Service program recognizing student service with education awards ranging from $1,000 to $2,362.50.
For more information on upcoming proposals and resources, we invite you to attend a conference call that will explain these opportunities and gauge your interest on other upcoming proposals.
Conference calls will be held:
Thursday, November 13 2pm (3pm non-members)

Tuesday, November 18 4pm (1pm non-members)
