Virginia Office on Volunteerism and Community Service needs your help

September 17, 2013


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 to view the Concept Paper Instructions and Format. Thank you for your interest in service and in AmeriCorps!
