New Funding Opportunity. NOFA for Second Round of VIRE grants now available!
HandsOn Network is pleased to announce the availability of up to $1,500,000.00 in grant funding to strengthen volunteer infrastructure and increase the number of Americans engaging in quality volunteer experiences that meet critical community needs. This opportunity will support organizations’ ability to directly engage volunteers and volunteer leaders in expanded volunteer opportunities in a specified geographic area. In addition, it will build the capacity of nonprofit organizations to effectively recruit, coordinate, train and manage volunteers to address education, the environment, and the economy.
Funding will be made available to individual volunteer connector organizations, collaborative community based entities led by a volunteer connector organization, and statewide entities (i.e. State Volunteer Center Associations and State Service Commissions) that build capacity and convene volunteer connector organizations and other partners to serve communities across the country.
