Executive Summary

The American Red Cross proposes to have 33 AmeriCorps members who will improve the capacity of communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters and will provide direct assistance to individuals experiencing disaster in locations across Michigan with six main sites in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Flint, Kalamazoo, and Traverse City. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for increasing the number of Michigan residents prepared for disasters both large and small. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 3,800 volunteers who will be engaged in disaster preparedness, response and recovery. This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Disaster Services. The CNCS investment of $432,899 will be matched with $449,976 in private funding.
