Issues to be aware of:

  • Have made positive contact with MSAD 70 program staff, and they are working on closing out this grant
  • When Trekkers Program Director left, there was a gap in time where a member did not get enrolled in a timely manner, yet the member was serving. This issue was discovered upon a site monitoring visit, and it will be brought to CNCS contact to seek correction due to circumstance.

  • Preparing Continuations for all 7 of the AmeriCorps (Formula) programs to go out in March, exact date TBD
  • Wrapping up site monitoring visits in the State for Learning Works, Healthy Acadia and Maine Conservation Corps
