National Association of Service and Conservation Corps Offers Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service Mini-Grants
The National Association of Service and Conservation Corps ( http://www.nascc.org/ ), in cooperation with the Corporation for National and Community Service, is offering mini-grants to support service projects as part of the 21st anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday (January 15, 2007).
These mini-grants will support service activities designed to alleviate conditions of poverty in communities and engage dis- advantaged youth.
NASCC encourages its members and outside organizations to apply for a mini-grant. NASCC will fund organizations that mobilize volunteers, especially disadvantaged youth, to undertake service activities to benefit impoverished communities.NASCC service projects will:
1) Provide relief to a condition of poverty through a service project;
2) Mobilize a diverse group of volunteers with an emphasis on disadvantaged youth;
3) Develop new and existing partnerships with community organizations who will participate in the project; and
4) Provide educational and recruitment materials to project volunteers and the community at large.NASCC will provide grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 each.

Grants can be used to plan and carry out service activities directly related to the proposed project.
NASCC will accept applications on a rolling basis. Applications will be considered and approved on a first-come, first-served basis. NASCC's ability to provide mini-grants to applicants is contingent upon funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Visit the NASCC Web site for complete program information and application procedures.
