Established in 1971 and now one of the largest senior volunteer programs in the nation, RSVP offers a diverse range of volunteer activities that serve communities to create measurable impact, benefit volunteers through the service experience, and create community capacity. RSVP volunteers serve with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week.

Through this competition, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) seeks to increase the impact of national service in one or more counties across the country. CNCS intends to fund RSVP grants that support volunteers age 55 years and older in activities that serve community needs and respond to the National Performance Measures in the following focus areas:  disaster; education; economic opportunity; environment; healthy futures;  and veterans and military families.
