Grants of $15,000 and grants of $20,000 to Florida nonprofits, faith-based organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and labor organizations to expand capabilities for community service. In addition to the funding, technical assistance, coaching, and training will be provided to strengthen the organization's capacity and to help it to more effectively recruit, manage, support and retain skills-based volunteers.
Skills-based volunteering is a strategic type of volunteerism that expands the impact of community organizations by engaging professionals from all industries, matching their experience, talents and education with the needs of nonprofits. Overarching program goals for the FY 2019-2020 VGF program include the following: (1) service organizations with limited resources will have increased capacity; (2) skills-based volunteers will utilize existing skills and gain new skills, which may also be a pathway to employment; and (3) critical community needs will be met.
Volunteers should provide services in the following six CNCS priority areas: 1) Disaster Services, 2) Economic Opportunity, 3) Education, 4) Environmental Stewardship, 5) Healthy Futures, 6) Veterans and Military Families.
Proposals including one of the priority areas listed below will receive a scoring priority:
1. Disaster Services: Improving community resiliency through disaster preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation.
2. Opioid Crisis: Reducing and/or preventing prescription drug and opioid abuse.
The proposal must include all of the following performance measures:
1. 400 skills based volunteers recruited
2. 3,000 hours served by skills based volunteers
3. Participation in a pre-/post-test assessment measuring organizational implementation of effective volunteer management practices.
