The Corporation for National and Community Service will make Community-Based awards to “grant-making entities” to provide subgrants to implement service and service-learning programs for school-age youth or to provide training and technical assistance to such programs. Programs may, for example, propose to provide new after-school programs in which youth participate in service-learning or add community service and service-learning as significant activities in existing after-school programs. Alternately, a community-based program might provide training and technical assistance to a network of youth-serving programs to incorporate high-quality service and service-learning practices into their existing programs. Funds will be used by intermediary organizations to create curriculum materials; support training and technical assistance activities; make subgrants to local organizations that will implement service-learning programs for youth ages five to seventeen; and strengthen, expand, and anchor a network of youth-serving community-based organizations that implement service-learning programs.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, December 16, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a notation that the applicant intends to apply for a Community-Based Grant; 2) whether the project will have a nonprofit or commission focus, 3) a summary of plans for identifying, funding, and supporting local programs; and 4) anticipated performance measures.

Amount: The Corporation anticipates making approximately ten to fifteen program grants of between $350,000 and $500,000 for each of three successive years. The grantee share of the total cost of carrying out a program must be at least 10 percent for the first year, 20 percent for the second year, 30 percent for the third year, and 50 percent for the fourth and any subsequent year.
