Subject: Community Development, Civic Engagement | Deadline: Aug. 20, 2015
"This notice announces the availability of funding for planning and delivering regional training conferences that focus on strengthening and building the capacity of AmeriCorps programs and Senior Corps projects across the country. CNCS acknowledges the need for flexibility in determining the regions where the conferences will be delivered. The primary target audiences for training at these regional training conferences are AmeriCorps State and National programs and Senior Corps projects.
These regional training conferences are a critical component of CNCS’s training and technical assistance (TTA) strategy for 2014-2015, and CNCS intends for these conferences to build on and leverage previous investments to increase the capacity for national service resources to impact communities. While AmeriCorps State and National programs and Senior Corps projects are the primary audiences, it is expected that other national service programs will be invited to participate such as AmeriCorps Indian Tribes programs, AmeriCorps VISTA programs (especially multi-site projects), Social Innovation Fund grantees, and AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) staff. Although the entire agenda of these conferences may not be specific to these programs, having broad representation from CNCS programs increases the potential for strong and integrated community impact."
