Comments

A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal Register on February 28, 2012. This comment period ended April 30, 2012. One individual submitted public comments. One comment was that the form should include specific explanation of how the matching program works. In response, a program purpose section has been added to the form. Another comment was to show some links to the Corporation for National and Community Service Web site. In response, in addition to the link that already appears on the Form for FAQs, an additional link to the Corporation's Web site has been added. Additional comments related to ideas for organizing the Corporation's Web site. In response, since these ideas relate to the Web site and not to the Form itself then no changes to the Form was needed.
