Apply for an AmeriCorps VISTA

Build your organization’s capacity with national service.

Ohio CDC Association (OCDCA) is accepting applications for organizations to become sub-sites to the OCDCA VISTA Project to begin summer 2017.

Apply to get an extra pair of hands with the work you are doing in the areas of economic opportunity, healthy futures, and/or environmental stewardship.

Selected project sub-sites must contribute a $1,600 fee, to be paid quarterly, which includes the registration fee for one sub-site staff member to attend the OCDCA annual conference.

RFP Opportunity Details

Funding for the OCDCA VISTA Project is provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) through the Ohio Housing Trust Fund (OHTF). Limited slots are available; therefore, this is a competitive process and some slots will be reserved for housing-only initiatives.

This will be your only opportunity in 2017 to apply for OCDCA VISTA support.

If your organization is interested in becoming a sub-site of the OCDCA VISTA Project, please complete the RFP by 5 PM Thursday, January 25, 2017.

Selected sub-site organizations must be current, good standing members of OCDCA. Membership dues are based on your organization’s program budget, and the membership application is accepted on anytime. By joining as a member now, your organization qualifies as a member in good standing for this application.

For questions or technical assistance on the RFP or with membership, please contact Melissa Miller at mmiller AT ohiocdc.org or by phone at 614-461-6392 ext. 209.
