CEDAM and the Michigan Foreclosure Task Force are pleased to announce that CEDAM has been awarded funding by the Corporation for National and Community Service to once again host the Michigan Foreclosure Prevention Corps AmeriCorps program.
In the pilot year of this program, which CEDAM hosted in conjunction with the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness, AmeriCorps members have served over 18,000 hours on foreclosure prevention focused projects. These projects include but are not limited to: recruiting, training and managing volunteers; community outreach and marketing; developing new systems for intake, resource allocation, partnership development; and financial literacy education.
We are now accepting applications for the 2010-11 service year. If your agency is interested in hosting an AmeriCorps member starting October 2010, please review and complete this application* [122KB .doc] by July 8, 2010. If you have any questions please contact Nichole Greene at 734.363.8113 or at email@example.com.
