Information sessions planned to share opportunities for national service, funding

TOPEKA — In an effort to meet community needs, the Kansas Volunteer Commission (KVC) is conducting sessions across the state to inform organizations about national service efforts in Kansas and to promote available funding opportunities. 

National service programs, such as AmeriCorps and Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF), are making observable impacts in Kansas communities every year. The KVC invites public and private nonprofits, faith-based organizations, government agencies, schools, and postsecondary institutions to attend the one-hour session offered in five cities this March.

Each session will include information on KVC national service funding opportunities, which range from $750 - $400,000. Participants will also learn about the new planning grant opportunity for organizations interested in developing an AmeriCorps State program. 

Information sessions are scheduled in the following locations: 11 a.m.-noon March 8 in Manhattan; 3-4 p.m.  March 15 in Pratt; 10-11 a.m. March 16 in Dodge City; 3-4 p.m. March 16 in Hays; and noon-1 p.m. March 21 in Pittsburg.

There is no cost to attend. Interested parties may register online https://goo.gl/B9PtFS or email volunteer@ksde.org for more information.
