Executive Summary

Oregon State Service Corps (OSSC) AmeriCorps program is a statewide intermediary model administered by the Oregon Region of the American Red Cross placing individual AmeriCorps members to meet community needs throughout Oregon. 57 full-time and 6 part-time AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 4,000 volunteers to provide services around disaster preparedness and other community-determined needs to at least 35 nonprofits in Oregon. At the end of the three-year period, 60,000 residents will have received disaster preparedness skills needed to build personal and community resiliency. This project will primarily focus on the CNCS focus areas of Disaster Services, with additional focus on Capacity Building, Education, Economic Opportunity, Veterans' Services, and Healthy Futures. The CNCS investment of $702,460 will be matched with $779,059.
