CORPORATION FOR NATIONAL AND COMMUNITY SERVICE Availability of Funds for AmeriCorps*VISTA/Higher Education and Non-Profit Service-Learning Program Grants
AGENCY: Corporation for National and Community Service. ACTION: Notice of availability of funds. SUMMARY: The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter ‘‘the Corporation’’) announces the availability of funds for fiscal year 2000 for new AmeriCorps*VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) Program grants and placements focusing on meeting the needs of low income communities, both urban and rural, through institutions of higher learning and non-profit organizations engaged in servicelearning-focused activities, including current Learn and Serve America grantees. As Harris Wofford, the CEO for the Corporation has stated, ‘‘by making the entire community the classroom, service-learning teaches students how to be better students and better citizens.’’ The Corporation for National Service defines service-learning as an educational method: • Under which students or participants learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully organized service that is conducted in and meets the needs of a community; • Which is coordinated within an elementary school, secondary school, institution of higher education, or community service program, and with the community; • Which helps foster civic responsibility; • Which is integrated into and enhances the academic curriculum of the students, or the educational

components of the community service program in which the participant is enrolled; and • Which provides structured time for the students or participants to reflect on the service experience. AmeriCorps*VISTA/Higher Education and Non-Profit Service-Learning Program Grants will focus on servicelearning activities addressing the needs of low-income communities in school districts. AmeriCorps*VISTA Program grant recipients must create sustainable anti-poverty service-learning programs after the AmeriCorps*VISTA resources are withdrawn. Applicants must clearly describe sustainable outcomes in terms of the impact on residents of lowincome communities, both urban and rural, through the efforts of these projects. Up to 10 grants will be funded. Each grant will support a minimum of five AmeriCorps*VISTA members. Grants with a larger number of AmeriCorps*VISTA members are encouraged. It is expected that grants will be awarded in September 2000. Each proposed grant project must be within the jurisdiction of a single Corporation for National Service State Office (state offices cover their own states only, with the following exceptions that are combined: Maine & New Hampshire, Vermont & Massachusetts; North & South Dakotas; Virginia & Washington, DC; Puerto Rico & Virgin islands; Maryland & Delaware). DATES: Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. E.D.T., August 4, 2000. ADDRESSES: Background information, including project applications, are available from the Corporation for National and Community Service, AmeriCorps*VISTA, 1201 New York Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20525, (202) 606–5000, ext. 134; TDD (202) 565–2799, or TTY via the Federal Information Relay Service at (800) 877– 8339. One signed original and two copies of the application should be submitted to the Corporation for National and Community Service, 1201 New York Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20525 Attn: David Gurr. The Corporation will not accept applications that are submitted via facsimile or email transmission. Applications submitted via overnight mail that arrive after the closing date will be accepted if they are postmarked at least two days prior to the closing date. Otherwise, late applications will not be accepted. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information, contact David Gurr, at 202–606–5000, ext. 212. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background The Corporation is a Federal government corporation that encourages Americans of all ages and backgrounds to engage in community-based service. This service addresses the nation’s educational, public safety, environmental and other human needs to achieve direct and demonstrable results. In doing so, we strive to foster civic responsibility, strengthen the ties that bind us together as a people, and provide educational opportunity for those who make a substantial commitment to service. We support a range of national service programs, including AmeriCorps, Learn and Serve America, and the National Senior Service Corps. AmeriCorps*VISTA, a component of AmeriCorps, is authorized under the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, as amended (Pub. L. 93–113). The statutory mandate of AmeriCorps*VISTA is ‘‘to strengthen and supplement efforts to eliminate and alleviate poverty and poverty-related problems in the United States by encouraging and enabling persons from all walks of life, all geographical areas, and all age groups * * * (to) assist in the solution of poverty and povertyrelated problems, and * * * to generate the commitment of private sector resources, to encourage volunteer service at the local level, and to strengthen local agencies and organizations to carry out the purpose (of the program).’’ (42 U.S.C. 4951) AmeriCorps*VISTA carries out its legislative mandate by assigning individuals 18 years and older, on a full-time, year-long basis, to public and private non-profit organizations. Each AmeriCorps*VISTA project must focus on the mobilization of community resources, the transference of skills to community residents, and the expansion of the capacity of community-based organizations to solve local problems. Programming should encourage permanent, long-term solutions to problems confronting lowincome communities rather than shortterm approaches for handling emergency needs. AmeriCorps*VISTA projects must actively elicit the support and/or participation of local public and private sector elements in order to enhance the chances of a project’s success, as well as to make the activities undertaken by AmeriCorps*VISTA members selfsustaining. B. Purpose of This Announcement The purpose of this announcement is to solicit applicants from the service-
