To facilitate board communication and assure compliance with the requirements for public notice, all MCCS meetings and work sessions will be posted on this site's Calendar as well as the State of Maine Legislative Calendar.

Task Force chairs are asked to check the dates/times/locations for their groups and notify staff of any changes.

As MCCS adds new staff and commissioners, we hope this central posting will help us all avoid "double booking" and, at the same time, make communication with partners smoother.

Program Development augmentation: Overview of Maine work plan
Again this year, CNCS offered states small amounts of additional program development/outreach funds to work on developing AmeriCorps applications related to any of three federal priorities. Maine qualified for support under 2 and both are issues of concern for Maine so a request was submitted. The text in the link above constitutes the application. Because it is an amendment to the regular grant, the format is limited.
