Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed Senior Corps RSVP Notice Of Funding Opportunity Non-applicant Study. The study involves two data collection phases. Phase I is a survey of individuals representing organizations, non-profits, and public agencies that are (1) current applicants, (2) current non-applicants, and (3) potential applicants for the RSVP Notice of Funding Opportunity. Phase II involves in-depth interviews with a range of stakeholders that includes individuals who administer grants, administer non-profits and public agencies applying for RSVP grants and representatives of state commissions. The survey and interviews are designed to allow CNCS Senior Corps administrators to understand how grantees and potential grantees view the application process, what factors are important in the decision to apply, and how the NOFO can be written to generate a higher response rate from potential grant applicants.
