FY 2015 RSVP Competition

Executive Summary

Audubon Area Community Services, Inc., the local Community Action Agency, operates in Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster counties of Kentucky and strives to fulfill its mission of "Helping People, Changing Lives, Building Communities" with sponsorship of the RSVP.

In 2015, an estimated 450 unduplicated RSVP members will serve. Activities will include food pantry supportive services, tutoring, housing assistance, financial literacy assistance, veterans' services and access to health related benefits. The primary focus area to be addressed is Healthy Futures. Information gleaned from sources such as the US Census, the KY State Data Center, the US Department of Agriculture, Annie E. Casey Foundation, Department of Veterans Affairs, health care providers, aging network partners, etc. will be used to determine needs.

At the end of the three-year grant, anticipated outcomes in our Health Futures primary focus area of "Reducing Childhood Obesity and Increased Access to Nutritious Food" will reflect 350 individuals in our seven county service area reporting an increase in food security through the assistance of RSVP volunteers serving in local food pantries.

The CNCS federal investment of $136,377 will be supplemented by 30% matching nonfederal funds in the minimal amount of $58,447 to be secured through diversified non-federal allocations.
