Solicitation Profile
The New York State Commission on National and Community Service (hereafter the Commission) seeks applicants for its 2016 Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) grant opportunity. New York’s Volunteer Generation program receives funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (hereafter CNCS) and from New York State. The Commission will accept proposals for VGF funding from interested nonprofit and municipal organizations that aim to alleviate poverty and increase opportunity for New Yorkers in need. Successful applicants will act as connector organizations and must commit to recruiting, training, placing and/or managing volunteers within their organizations and within nonprofit organizations in their communities. Applicants must identify an issue area(s) of focus, under the macro goal of alleviating poverty, and will articulate how the volunteers they recruit, train and manage will make a demonstrable impact in their communities. Preference will be given to agencies that seek to serve the five Empire State Development (ESD) regions of New York State not currently served by VGF programming. These five regions are the Capital District, Central NY, the Southern Tier, Long Island, and the North Country.
