Description:

The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the ?Corporation??) announces the availability of approximately $1,488,000 to award Next Generation Grants. The Corporation expects to make 5 to 10 awards that range in amounts from approximately $100,000 to $300,000 covering a period not to exceed 2 years.
The purpose of these grants is to foster the next generation of national service organizations by providing seed money to organizations proposing new projects or programs that have the potential to become national in scope.
These grants will fund innovative strategies that effectively engage volunteers in service in the following two areas:
1. Engaging adults age 50+ in part-time and full-time service opportunities; and
2. Improving the lives of disadvantaged youth through service and mentoring.
The Corporation wants to ensure that all eligible organizations are able to compete on an equal basis for federal financial assistance. The Corporation encourages all eligible public and private non-profit organizations including faith-based and other community-based organizations, to apply. Applicants who have received any previous grant award from the Corporation are not eligible for a Next Generation Grant. Applicants must also be able to develop programs that have the potential to become national in scope, or provide a compelling case that the model could be replicated in other locations. Applicants must propose one or both of the strategies listed above.
Applicants as defined by this announcement include the following:
1. Start-Up Organizations are organizations that have been operating for two years or less;
2. New Organizations are organizations that have been operating for two to five years; and
3. Established Organizations are organizations that have been operating for more than five years and are proposing a new project or program under this notice.
The deadline for eGrants submissions is 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on June 7, 2005. If you are unable to submit your application using eGrants, a paper application along with a diskette or CD Rom with an exact duplicate of your application must be received at the Corporation for National and Community Service, 1201 New York Avenue, NW, Attn: Next Generation Grants, Washington, DC 20525 by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on June 7, 2005. Applications submitted by fax or email will not be accepted.
This Notice, with the complete application, guidelines and other relevant material, is available on the Corporation?s website at: http://www.nationalservice.org/ under ?Funding and Initiatives?. The TDD number is 202?565?2799. Upon request, this information will be made available in alternative formats for persons with disabilities.
The Corporation will make awards covering a period not to exceed 2 years with continued funding beyond year one contingent upon satisfactory performance and other criteria established in the award agreement. These funds are available under authority of section 198 of the National and Community Service Act of 1990 (42 USC 12653) and the Omnibus Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2005.
