Maryland Governor's Office on Service & Volunteerism
The Maryland Governor's Office on Service and Volunteerism (GOSV) requests $174,333 for the Maryland Volunteer Generation Fund. The Maryland Volunteer Generation Fund will begin on October 1, 2013, and it will provide sub-grants to a diverse group of 6 local volunteer centers. For the 1-year VGF grant period, the GOSV will offer existing VGF sub-grantees the opportunity to re-apply; no external sub-applications will be accepted. The volunteer centers will use the funds to increase the number of citizens who volunteer and the number of volunteer hours served each year. This request builds on the successful implementation of Maryland's Volunteer Generation Fund in the 2010-2013 grant period.
