Through the Southwest Oregon VetCorps Program (Vetcorps Program) 24 AmeriCorps members (6 full-time and 18 part-time), all military veterans, will leverage an additional 76 veterans and their immediate family members as volunteers to provide service opportunities to veterans in Grants Pass, Medford and Coos Bay, Oregon. At the end of the three-year project period, 72 members (all veterans) and 228 volunteers (veterans or immediate family members) will have increased service opportunities in Southwest Oregon. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Veterans. The CNCS investment of $199,500 will be matched with $118,218.
