Corporation for National and Community Service.
Notice of funding availability.
The Corporation for National and Community Service (hereinafter the “Corporation”) announces the availability of approximately $4,167,000 in grant funds for a nonprofit organization to implement the Parent Drug Corps Program (“the Parent Corps Program”). The purpose of the grant is to fund a national training system and develop a network of volunteer parents engaged in a nationwide substance abuse prevention effort. This estimate is a projection for the guidance of potential applicants. The Corporation is not bound by any estimate in this notice. These funds are available under authority provided in Public Law 108-7, the Omnibus Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2003. The program is a special volunteer program under section 122 of the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4992). Applicable regulations include the uniform administrative requirements for grants and agreements with institutions of higher education, hospitals, and other nonprofit organizations, 45 CFR part 2543.
Eligible nonprofit organizations, including community organizations (faith-based and secular), are encouraged to apply. The Corporation anticipates receiving fewer than ten applications for this solicitation, and anticipates making one grant award under this announcement. The Corporation will make an award covering a period not to exceed three years. The grant proposal must include a proposed budget and proposed activities for the performance period. The Corporation is uncertain as to whether additional funds will be made available for Parent Drug Corps program grants in subsequent years, and has no obligation to provide additional funding beyond the period of this grant. Future funding is contingent on performance and the availability of appropriations.
