More than a contest, this is part of the "in-service education" for Commission board members.

Commission Members should: email their response before 5 pm Thursday, June 15, 2017!

Send your answers to Service.Commission@maine.gov. All correct answers will be well rewarded at the meeting.

This Month's Challenge

In the Serve America Act, one section (42 U.S.C. 12657, also labeled Subtitle J) authorizes CNCS to grant to state commissions training and technical assistance funds to help 

(1) programs receiving assistance under the national service laws; and
(2)entities (particularly entities in rural areas and underserved communities) that desire to—
      (A)  carry out or establish national service programs; or
      (B)  apply for assistance (including subgrants) under the national service laws.
 

The section continues with a list of 10 types of training that may be funded under these grants.

QUESTION: Of the 10 types of training, which have you heard discussed by MCCS staff or Commission members? (Reading in staff reports counts, too.)

Your reference for this month can be found HERE.
