RSVP Focus Area Technical Assistance

In 2009, Congress passed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act (SAA), the most sweeping expansion of national service in a generation. This landmark law not only expands service opportunities, but also focuses national service on key outcomes; builds the capacity of individuals, nonprofits, and communities to succeed; and encourages innovative approaches to solving problems.

In alignment with the SAA and the Corporation for National and Community Service Strategic Plan, this Senior Corps RSVP Notice will focus grant making for fiscal year 2014 in the six Focus Areas identified by SAA:

  • Education
  • Healthy Futures
  • Veterans and Military Families
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Economic Opportunity
  • Disaster Services

In order to carry out the intent of Congress and to maximize the impact of the investment in national service, CNCS seeks to fund programs that can demonstrate community impact and solve community problems through National Performance Measures in the Focus Areas listed above.
