United Way of Central West Virginia
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
Seventy full-time AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 5,250 community volunteers over the three year grant period, to provide an integrated response to the needs of vulnerable and at-risk individuals and families by providing: academic support to at-risk children and families; training in financial literacy and job skills; and information and referral services to at least 6,000 individuals throughout the state of West Virginia. By the end of the three year grant period, 21,000 individuals will be served by this comprehensive approach to improve the lives of those living in poverty. This project will focus on the CNCS focus areas of Education, Economic Opportunity and Healthy Futures. The CNCS investment of $931,000.00 will be matched with $931,000.00 with organization and community generated funds.
