RSVP 2013 Grant Competition

RSVP Volunteers working together
For more than 40 years, RSVP has delivered proven results and engaged millions of Americans 55+ in national and community service. Last week, Senior Corps opened its 2013 RSVP Competition, which intends to fund RSVP projects that support volunteers 55+ serving in a diverse range of activities that meet specific local and community needs and respond to National Performance Measures.

During the upcoming fiscal year, RSVP grants will be awarded on a competitive basis as mandated by the 2009 Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. This competition represents a re-imagining and modernizing of the Senior Corps program, and it will help RSVP continue to thrive and provide a resource our country can draw on.
