Presidents Volunteer Service Award Program: This Notice of Federal Funds Availability (Notice) announces the availability of funding for the start-up and initial inventory for the Presidents Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) Program and the intention of the Corporation for National and Community Service to form a cooperative agreement with an organization to provide administrative and technical support for the PVSA. The program is consistent with the Presidential Awards for Service and Presidents Call to Service as authorized by the National and Community Service Act of 1990 as amended by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act of 2009 (42 U.S.C. 12653a). The Presidents Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard measured by the number of hours of service over a 12-month period or cumulative hours earned over the course of a lifetime. To learn more about the current program including the award packages based on hours of service, visit: the program began in 2003, an average of 135,000 awards has been distributed each year through almost 6000 orders. Through this awards program, the Corporation seeks to honor those individuals and groups that dedicate significant time in service to others and, in so doing, encourage others to serve.Through a cooperative agreement awarded in this competition, we aim to increase the numbers of individuals and organizations that qualify for the award based on the numbers of hours served in a year and ultimately increase the numbers of individuals who are effectively serving in their communities. Research suggests that effective volunteer management is key to sustained volunteering and that recognition is one piece of effective volunteer management. The successful applicant will work with the Corporation to market, administer and expand participation in the Presidents Volunteer Service Awards program. The successful organization should demonstrate the knowledge and ability to market the PVSA in a way that is respectful of a presidential award, is culturally competent, reinforces good volunteer management practices, and reflects the values of the promoting effective service.
