Proposed Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Social Innovation Fund 2011 Awards; Request for Feedback
Document Number: 2010-32789
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-12-29
Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is releasing a draft of the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the 2011 Social Innovation Fund competition. This release will initiate a public input period that will extend until January 21, 2011. The Social Innovation Fund is an innovative program that awards grants to and works with existing grantmaking institutions, referred to in the Notice as ``intermediaries,'' to direct resources to innovative community-based nonprofit organizations that will identify and grow promising programs with preliminary evidence of effectiveness. These programs will address challenges facing local communities in three priority issue areas: Youth Development; Economic Opportunity; and Healthy Futures This public input process reinforces the commitment of CNCS to maintain the high standard of transparency and openness the Social Innovation Fund demonstrated in its initial year (2010). An open process is also critical to ensure that, moving forward, the Social Innovation Fund is able to select the high quality of grantees required to advance its missionsignificantly and sustainably improving the lives of people in low-income communities throughout the U.S. CNCS has built on the lessons from the 2010 Social Innovation Fund competition, and is proposing several changes from last year's process that are reflected in the draft 2011 document: The Social Innovation Fund is taking additional steps towards transparency consistent with CNCS's commitment to transparency. The NOFO indicates that CNCS plans to release the names and executive summaries of all applications considered for funding, the names of all expert reviewers, and the reviewer comments for all selected grantees. The public comment period will allow us to gauge the sector's thoughts on this issue. To expand the number of intermediaries able to participate in the Social Innovation Fund, we have decreased the maximum dollar amount for which intermediaries can apply from $10 million to $7 million. The minimum level will remain at $1 million. To stimulate the identification of additional high-impact community-based organizations throughout the U.S., intermediaries will not be permitted to include pre-selected subgrantees in their applications. All intermediary applicants will select all of their subgrantees through open, competitive processes initiated after receipt of their award. CNCS has streamlined and clarified the overall content of the NOFO to make it easier for organizations to apply. Particularly we have clarified the eligibility criteria, consolidated guidelines for narrative content, and added information about the review process. CNCS is soliciting public input on the proposed Social Innovation Fund NOFO. As appropriate, the feedback received will be taken into account in the final NOFA. (CNCS will not provide individual responses to feedback received.)

Serve America Act Amendments to the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973
Document Number: 2010-6962
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-03-30
Agency: Corporation for National and Community Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Corporation for National and Community Service (the Corporation) is correcting a proposed rule to implement changes to the operation of the National Service Trust and the Senior Corps programs under the Serve America Act, that appeared in the Federal Register of February 23, 2010 (75 FR 8013). That document incorrectly amended 45 CFR 2527.10(c) by removing current paragraph (c)(2). Additionally, there were two misstatements in the preamble. First, in an example to illustrate the limitation on the value of education awards an individual may receive, the preamble stated that a person who had previously earned the aggregate value of 1.71 awards could enroll in a quarter-time, minimum-time, reduced part-time, or Silver Scholar position. The inclusion of reduced part-time as an option in this example was in error. Second, the preamble incorrectly described the hardship waiver for Senior Companion and Foster Grandparent programs in the preamble. This document corrects the interim final rule by revising the preamble language providing an example of the aggregate value of education awards and the language describing the hardship waiver for Senior Companion and Foster Grandparent programs and by revising the instructions for 45 CFR 2527.10.

On April 21, 2009, President Obama signed into law the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act (``The Serve America Act'' or ``SAA''). The Serve America Act reauthorizes and expands national service programs administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service (``the Corporation'') by amending the National and Community Service Act of 1990 (``NCSA'' or ``the Act'') and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973 (``DVSA''). The Corporation publishes this proposed rule to implement changes to the operation of the National Service Trust under the Serve America Act. This proposed rule provides flexibility for exceptions to the 80 percent cost reimbursement requirement for Senior Companion and Foster Grandparent programs based on hardship. In addition, this proposed rule reorders and renumbers certain parts of the existing regulations, adds new definitions, and makes several minor technical edits.
