Challenge Grants FY 2004: The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter ?the Corporation") announces the availability of approximately $2,400,000 in fiscal year 2004 funds for eligible nonprofit organizations for challenge grants. The purpose of these challenge grants is to assist nonprofit organizations in securing previously untapped sources of private funds to build sustainable service and volunteer programs. Organizations receiving funds under this notice must either greatly expand services by engaging citizens in meeting community needs or offer new services through expanded citizen engagement. The funds are available for these challenge grants under Public Law 108-199, the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2004. The Corporation anticipates making up to four challenge grants under this announcement, with the minimum grant level of up to $500,000 and the maximum grant level of $1,000,000. Applicants must provide at least two dollars in private funding for every federal dollar. Matching funds must be cash and grantees must raise the matching funds within a year. The Corporation will make awards covering a period not to exceed one year. Because 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 non-profit organizations, including those that have not applied for federal assistance from the Corporation in the past, as well as all interested faith-based and secular community organizations, intermediary organizations, associations of volunteer centers, Indian tribal organizations and community foundations to apply. Unless the Corporation approves otherwise, all applicants must apply through its eGrants electronic system. NOTE: Publication of this announcement does not obligate the Corporation to award any specific number of grants or to obligate the entire amount of funds available, or any part thereof, for grants under the challenge grant program.
