The Grant Experts, Inc
AmeriCorps National Planning Grant FY 2012
This planning grant will be utilized to develop an AmeriCorps program which will engage AmeriCorps members in economic development related planning, partnering, and capacity building issues at 141 targeted tribally-based nonprofit sites in the Four Corners Tribal Land. Members actively recruited through Dine College will help nonprofits build long-term capacity to address the needs of tribal residents who lack job skills and are facing poverty and unemployment, resulting in agency stability and a future of expanded employment-related services rather than closed doors. Program activities will primarily be in the area of Economic Opportunity.
