Executive Summary

LEGAL APPLICANT (sponsor organization): Black Hills State University

An estimated 420 RSVP volunteers will serve at approximately 75 stations such as Food Banks, Schools, Nutrition Sites and Senior Centers. RSVP Volunteers will serve children, frail elderly,

homeless, veterans and poverty level citizens who are in need for food assistance, independent living assistance or educational assistance. Volunteers will also serve other nonprofit agencies through capacity building.

The Primary Focus Area of this project is Healthy Futures. At the end of the performance period, 50 RSVP volunteers will have served in Measure H10; number of individuals receiving emergency food from food banks, food pantries or other nonprofit organizations. This will be monitored and data will be provided to demonstrate the outcome of increased food security for those individuals. Likewise, another 75 volunteers will serve in this focus area in Measure H8; number of homebound or order adults and individuals with disabilities receiving food, transportation, or other services that allow them to live independently.

The CNCS federal investment of $59,490 will be supplemented by $31,600 of non-federal resources.
