Commission AmeriCorps State Competitive Planning Grants FY 2012
This planning grant will be utilized to develop an AmeriCorps program which will engage approximately 30 AmeriCorps members to build the capacity of local Iowa nonprofits in both urban and rural settings to help deliver solutions to locally identified community conditions throughout the state of Iowa. Members will address the needs of small community based organizations in some urban and rural areas, resulting in more efficient, effective and greater levels of service to Iowa's most vulnerable citizens. Program activities will primarily be in the areas of capacity building.
