2015 RSVP Competition: 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. Click here for RSVP Program Regulations. Through this competition CNCS seeks to increase the impact of national service in 341 specific communities across the country. CNCS intends to fund RSVP grants that support volunteers 55 years and older serving in a diverse range of activities that meet specific community needs and that respond to National Performance Measures. RSVP grant applications must: • Serve the entire geographic service area associated with the funding opportunities listed in Appendix A; • Support the minimum number of volunteers listed in Appendix A; • Meet the National Performance Measure requirements and other criteria established in this Notice; and • Minimize, to the extent possible, disruptions to the current volunteers associated with any incumbent project.
