The OFBCI’s purpose is to maximize the power of service and volunteering to improve lives in communities across our state. It is precisely because of this focus that the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (hereafter “IHCDA”) elected to collaborate with the OFBCI on the structured volunteer activities component of the Indiana Hardest Hit Fund (hereafter “IHHF”). This three-year program is financed through the United States Department of the Treasury. The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (hereafter “IDWD”) is also a partner in this endeavor.
The OFBCI is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) for HoosierCorps (Hardest Hit Fund Volunteer Service Program). Organizations in region eight (8) (Brown, Daviess, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Monroe, Orange, and Owen Counties) are encouraged to consider applying. The grant period is February 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013.
Volunteer centers are the chief target of this RFP. However, public or private nonprofit organizations, faith-based and other community organizations; institutions of higher education; government entities such as cities or towns; partnerships and consortia; and intermediaries are eligible to apply. Please note that applicants must demonstrate significant experience in managing large-scale volunteer programs.
Responsibilities will include, but are not necessarily limited to, the recruitment of eligible community and faith-based nonprofits in need of volunteers, certification of volunteer hours, programmatic assessments (specifically progress towards selected program measures), volunteer training, fiscal administration and oversight. Organizations (or their leadership) that have been convicted of a Federal crime are disqualified from receiving the assistance described in this RFP.
Applications are due to the OFBCI on or before Monday, December 31, 2012. The Request for Proposals and Application Instructions below provide details on how to apply.
