Serving on Review Committee for Maine AmeriCorps Grant Applications

Published September 9, 2008

One learns a lot about what is happening across the State of Maine when serving on the AmeriCorps Grants Review committee. Sometimes we tend to get caught up in the issues and needs of just our own portion of Maine but when you have the opportunity to read the AmeriCorps grant proposals, you widen your understanding and knowledge of the state. Personally, I think that reading the proposals taught me more about how to write (or not to write) a government grant than any grant writing workshop I ever attended. I encourage anyone who is active in the nonprofit world in Maine to take up this opportunity to read and evaluate AmeriCorps proposals. It is interesting and valuable work and you will gain from participating.
