AmeriCorps National Planning Grant FY 2012

Executive Summary

This planning grant will be utilized to develop an AmeriCorps program that will engage AmeriCorps members to create, support, expand and sustain local food production and agriculture activities in low and moderate communities, rural and urban, across the country. Members will address the needs of low and moderate income Americans and their families, particularly those that are food insecure, resulting in greatly enhancing the capacity of program participants and their communities to meet the need for fresh, nutritious locally produced food. Program Activities will touch all six areas identified in the CNCS five year strategic plan but focus primarily on Environmental Stewardship and Veterans and Military Families.
