Oneida County Senior Corps RSVP grant announced

U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin's office announced last week that Wisconsin will receive $1,344,374 in funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) that will support Senior Corps members serving the community with local organizations.

Among the recipients is an Oneida County program which will receive a grant in the amount of $82,500.

"Senior Corps RSVP volunteers will support the delivery of home-delivered meals, transportation for medical and nutritional purposes, assistance at food pantry distribution sites, tax preparation assistance and other services that assist older adults to remain successfully at home and avoid institutionalization," according to a press release issued by Baldwin's office.

"Wisconsinites are committed to serving their communities more than ever, and hundreds of thousands of men and women have answered the call to service. And those who serve not only have the opportunity to make a difference, they develop valuable skills and find a passion for service that lasts a lifetime. These grants will help organizations continue to expand their reach to engage more people and bring communities together in our state," said Senator Baldwin. "I want to thank all those who have served in Senior Corps in Wisconsin and across the country, and the organizations that have made their service possible. Given the stiff competition for these grants, only the most exceptional proposals are funded and I am especially proud of these Wisconsin organizations and the work they are doing."
