Chicago Rehab Network
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
Fifteen AmeriCorps members will contribute to ameliorating the affordable housing crisis through our work to support the community development field in the Illinois and Chicago metro area. At the end of the period, each Member will have a portfolio of activities/products to document their service and a myriad of relationships developed with community/faith-based leaders in local communities. Our key expected outcome is that both Members and Community Organizations benefit from this CNCS investment, and particularly that some Members decide to pursue work in the community development field. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Economic Opportunity and Capacity Building and begin 9/1/2012 for three years. The CNCS investment of $239,248 will be matched with $203,421.
