Twenty five AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 1000 volunteers to address community development and natural resource issues in rural Oregon. Beginning in September 2012, the members will increase capacity in rural Oregon to complete projects such stream clean ups, downtown beautification and streetscapes, community gardens and trail building. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of capacity building. The CNCS investment of $209,517 will be matched with $510,508. This program, administered by the University of Oregon, serves as an intermediary so that small organizations in rural and remote Oregon that could not support an entire AmeriCorps program, can still access AmeriCorps members.
