New VetCorps Program to Help Veterans Access Key Services and Support
The VetCorps project is being conducted by the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) in partnership with the National Guard Bureau’s Prevention, Treatment and Outreach (PTO) Program with funding assistance from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). CADCA will recruit AmeriCorps and VISTA members, particularly veterans, including inactive National Guard and Reserve members. Each member will be placed in one of CADCA’s community coalitions located throughout the country to provide support to Veterans and Military Families (VMF) with a special emphasis on serving the needs of National Guard and Reserve VMF.
“The goal of the VetCorps is to place 100 full-time AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA members in community coalitions throughout all 50 states and U.S. territories. The project is currently recruiting coalitions nationwide.”
If your coalition is interested in hosting an AmeriCorps or AmeriCorps VISTA member, or if you are a veteran looking to apply for the VetCorps program, contact:
