The Corporation for National and Community Service is making Challenge Grants available to support innovative and demonstration national and community service proposals throughout the country. The 2005 Challenge Grant competition is intended to engage volunteers in disaster relief and recovery for those affected by the recent hurricanes in the Gulf Coast region. Applicants should propose strategies that engage volunteers in full-time, part-time, or episodic service designed to meet the needs in the Gulf Coast region and other areas of the country managing the large influx of evacuees. Applicants must propose to significantly expand existing services or implement new services that serve the population impacted by the hurricanes.
