Executive Summary

An estimated 60 RSVP volunteers will serve. Of this number, 60 RSVP volunteers will be placed in outcome-based assignments. Some of their activities will include: non-emergency medical transportation; assist with housing search and transition services; recruitment of volunteers. The primary focus area of this project is Healthy Futures. At the end of the 3-year grant period 200 older adults and individuals with disabilities will have their non-emergency medical transportation needs met; 110 economically disadvantaged individuals will be transitioned into safe, healthy, affordable housing; and ten organizations will have implemented three or more effective volunteer management practices as a result of capacity building services. The CNCS annual federal investment of $75,000 will be supplemented by $45,000 (non-federal resources: 1st year 10%; 2nd year 20%; 3rd year 30%).
