The Virginia Office on Volunteerism and Community Service (OVCS) is soliciting Concept Papers from organizations interested in developing applications for the upcoming AmeriCorps*State 2014-15 funding cycle. The purpose of AmeriCorps*State is to engage AmeriCorps members in direct service to address unmet community needs. Local programs design service activities for a team of members serving full- or part-time for one year or during the summer.
The submittal of a Concept Paper is not a requirement for applying for AmeriCorps*State funds, but is strongly recommended for organizations that are new to AmeriCorps. The deadline for receipt of the Concept Paper is September 27, 2013. For a copy of the Concept Paper instructions, please visit http://www.vaservice.org/go/national/americorps/funding/ to view the Concept Paper Instructions and Format. Thank you for your interest in service and in AmeriCorps!
