PROGRAM TITLE: BLACKFEET HOUSING AUTHROITY AMERICORPS PROJECT
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The project will focus on planning a successful project for a future Opportunity grant. The program will be staffed by a Project Coordinator, who is responsible for planning activities for the Ameri-Corp Grant, assessing volunteer strengths, and collecting statistical data.

An Assistant will be hired to carry out office duties as required.
The planning grant will allow the Blackfeet Tribe and Blackfeet Housing to do the following:

* Complete an organizational/community needs assessment.
* Develop community partnerships to help support the AmeriCorps Project
