National Peace Corps Association Launches Global Community Project Fund

Founded in 1979 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the National Peace Corps Association is the nation's leading 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supporting returned Peace Corps volunteers and the Peace Corps community. It is also the longest-standing advocate for an independent and robust Peace Corps and its values.

This year, as part of the Peace Corps' golden anniversary celebration, NPCA is introducing the Global Community Project Fund. The fund is designed to support innovative and scalable projects that address pressing challenges and are led by members of the Peace Corps community. Proposals are invited from member groups, NPCA members, and other members of the Peace Corps community, which includes any individual who values the Peace Corps, including Peace Corps staff, host country nationals, and their counterparts.

The NPCA is accepting proposals for projects that seek to improve livelihoods in ways that strengthen peace and enhance prosperity — the Peace Corps' two overarching and timeless goals. Proposals must have a direct and measurable benefit to a community of need, be replicable and scalable, and involve a Peace Corps community member. Projects may be based in the United States or abroad.

Projects may include microfinance programs, working with local communities to build and manage housing or clean water and sanitation, advocating for education of girls, coordinating media activities to generate awareness and action, or other projects in the Peace Corps community and beyond.

The competition will take place in two rounds. The deadline for round-one proposals is June 3, 2011. Two semi-finalists will then be selected to present their proposals to an audience in Washington, D.C., on September 24, 2011. The most successful proposal will be awarded $25,000.
