AmeriCorps RFP Opportunity
The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions and the New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism announce the release of the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2014-2015 program year. The purpose of the Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit sealed proposals to establish multiple contracts through competitive negotiations for the procurement of agreements with AmeriCorps programs throughout the state of New Mexico. In order to carry out Congress’ intent and to maximize the impact of the investment in national service, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and the New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism (NMCCV) are seeking to fund programs that can demonstrate community impact and solve community problems through an evidence-based approach (e.g. performance data, research, theory of change). Proposals submitted for AmeriCorps program funding are subject to review by New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism (NMCCV) and, if funded, programs are subject to NMCCV oversight. For more information, please visit www.dws.state.nm.us/nmccv/.
