RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. The purpose of this RSVP grant funding is two-fold: (1) to establish new RSVP projects in geographic areas that are currently unserved by existing Corporation-funded RSVP projects; and (2) to expand the number of RSVP volunteers serving in existing RSVP projects who will engage in new programmatic activities.III. Requirements to apply for these grantsA. What are the programmatic requirements?1. RSVP projects must focus RSVP volunteers, who must be at least 55 years old, on meeting critical community needs through assignments that provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of the volunteers.2. At a minimum, 20 percent of the RSVP volunteers supported by these grants must be placed in assignments to recruit other community volunteers, thus expanding the capacity of local non-profits to meet their missions.3. All of the RSVP volunteers must be placed in assignments that address one or more of the 16 categories of community needs identified in the Domestic Volunteer Service Act as national problems of local concern, or "Programs of National Significance (PNS)," as listed in "Programs of National Significance Categories" appended to this NOFA.The Corporation is particularly interested in supporting the following volunteer activities:(1) Providing in-home, non-medical independent living support to those in need of extra help, including frail seniors, veterans of recent conflicts, and their caregivers. (PNS Categories: 1, 2, 6, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16)(2) Assisting children and youth to succeed academically, including mentoring, tutoring, and other assistance to remain in school.

The application budget must include funding for a full-time RSVP Project Director. However, if you believe you can justify proposing less than a full-time project director, please provide a full justification in your narrative on project management. If your application is selected to receive an award, your justification will be taken into account in final grant award negotiations.B. Is there a matching or grantee share requirement for these grants?Yes. Applicants proposing to establish a new RSVP project must budget and raise 10 percent of the total project budget in Year 1, 20 percent in Year 2, and 30 percent in Year 3 and subsequent years, if the grant is renewed beyond three years.

Additional Information on Eligibility
A. Who is eligible for this funding? To be eligible to apply for these funds, an applicant must be a public agency (including state and local agencies and other units of government), a non-profit organization (including community-based organizations, both faith-based and secular), an institution of higher education, or an Indian Tribe. Indian Tribe is defined as a federally recognized Indian Tribe, band, nation, or other organized group or community, including any Native village, Regional Corporation, or Village Corporation, as defined under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (43 U.S.C. §1602), that the United States Government determines is eligible for special programs and services provided under federal law to Indians because of their status as Indians. Indian Tribes also include tribal organizations controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by one of the entities described above. This competition is open to all organizations that meet these eligibility requirements. Existing RSVP grantees are eligible to apply, but must be currently complying with all programmatic and fiscal requirements of their grant, including on-time submission of required reports, as determined by Corporation. (If you are a current RSVP grantee, see Section V.I.9, below, for additional information.) An existing RSVP grantee may apply for either: (a) an augmentation of its current grant for expansion of an existing project within its currently approved geographic service area or into a new unserved geographic area, or (b) a new grant to establish a new RSVP project in an unserved area, or (c) both (a) and (b). In the case of augmentation proposals, expansion into unserved geographic areas is a Corporation priority. All other organizations may propose only to establish a new RSVP project in a geographic area unserved by a current RSVP grantee. A list of current grantees, with their respective geographic service areas, will be posted at http://www.seniorcorps.gov/for_organizations/funding/nofa.asp. An organization described in Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C. 501(c)(4)) that engages in lobbying activities is not eligible to apply, serve as a host site for volunteers, or act in any type of supervisory role in the program.
