  5. Community Stakeholder Survey

  6. Prior to Re-Competition The Serve America Act requires that CNCS provide an evaluation that: “…conveys information of program strengthsand weaknesses and assists with program improvement; and [can] be used asthe basis for program improvement, and for the provision of training and technical assistance.” (Sec.2143.(5)(A)(B)

  7. The Pre-Competition Evaluation Each grantee will receive a customized report from the Corporation - also known as “the evaluation” Evaluations are for grantee self-improvement and will not be used by CNCS for any purpose Evaluations will not be used to: “Weed out” underperforming sponsors Prevent participation in re-competition Evaluations will not affect the rating of future applications

The RSVP sponsor is the lead to organize a group to ensure there is local community participation in the project. “Community Participation Group” is the generic term we will use to describe this group. The group may be: • The project’s advisory council • The sponsor’s board of directors • Another group that is familiar with both the project and the community

Are knowledgeable about the human and social needs of the community Are competent in the field of community service and volunteerism Are capable of assisting the sponsor meet administrative and program responsibilities Have an interest in and knowledge ofolder adults Reflect the demographics of the project’s service area
