The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is releasing the 2013 RSVP Competition Draft Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity (Draft Notice) as a draft on August 2, 2012. CNCS’s intent by offering this Draft Notice on this date is to provide all potential applicants with additional time to become familiar with the requirements and characteristics of the RSVP Competition. We recommend potential applicants use this additional time to begin outlining and developing their grant applications. CNCS will also be holding Technical Assistance Calls during this time. It is emphasized that because this is a draft document, it is possible that the final Notice could contain certain requirements that are not currently contained in this Draft Notice. We anticipate that the final Notice, the final Application Instructions and eGrants will be open for submission of applications on or about September 1, 2012. The deadline for submitting applications is Thursday, October 11, 2012. In alignment with the Serve America Act (SAA) and the CNCS Strategic Plan, this Senior Corps RSVP Draft Notice will focus grant making for fiscal year 2013 in the six Focus Areas identified by SAA: • Education • Healthy Futures • Veterans and Military Families • Environmental Stewardship • Economic Opportunity • Disaster Services In order to carry out the intent of Congress and to maximize the impact of the investment in national service, CNCS seeks to fund programs that can demonstrate community impact and solve community problems through National Performance Measures in the Focus Areas listed above. Please see the full text of this Draft Notice for additional funding priorities. In this competition CNCS intends to fund RSVP projects that support volunteers 55 years and older serving in a diverse range of activities that meet specific local and community needs and respond to National Performance Measures. RSVP projects awarded under this Draft Notice must: • Serve all the counties in the geographic service area associated with the funding opportunity listed in Appendix A Part 1 or Part 2 of the Notice; • Support at least 80% of the number of volunteers listed in Appendix A of the Notice; • Minimize, to the extent possible, disruptions to the current volunteers associated with any incumbent project. Please see Appendix C of the Notice for more information; and • Meet the National Performance Measure requirements and other criteria established in this Draft Notice.
