Rahall Announces Funding for W.Va. Volunteer Service Program

BECKLEY, W.Va. – U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) Wednesday announced that the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is accepting grant applications from West Virginia organizations interested in recruiting national service volunteers to help address local needs.

“In West Virginia, more than 730 national service volunteers are putting their time and energies into addressing a wide range of challenges -- including poverty, illiteracy, and veterans’ homelessness.  I encourage all organizations interested in promoting and benefiting from volunteerism to take full advantage of the funding and resources provided through CNCS that I have helped to make available,” said Rahall.   

The CNCS funding can be used for six national focus areas identified in the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.  Organizations eligible to apply include public or private nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and labor organizations, as well as institutions of higher education and government entities.

To learn more about the application processes and deadlines, applicants should contact Volunteer West Virginia, the State’s commission for National and Community Service, at (800) WV-HELPS or (304) 558-0111.
