May 22, 2020

Volunteer Maine, the state service commission, and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) announced five Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) grants to community-based organizations.

The purpose of a Maine VGF grant is to provide support to volunteer programs in the state that are providing service in three focus areas: Aging in place, transportation services and food security and assistance.

Three of the five agencies were also awarded an additional $10,000 in funds to support the need for surge services related to the COVID-19 health emergency. The three agencies – Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program, Southern Maine Agency on Aging, and Catholic Charities Maine – are using the funds to support volunteers and increase organizational capacity of their respective efforts to combat food insecurity.

The five organizations that submitted successful grant applications are being collectively awarded $201,267. One of the five organizations being awarded is The WindowDressers, Inc., located in Rockland. They were awarded $35,399 for this grant.
