All requests for funding must participate in the Peace Corps Partnership program. The group is unable to give grants to volunteers who do not participate in the Peace Corps Partnership program. For more information about this program, please visit the Peace Corps Partnership website.
Peace Corps’ guidelines for currently serving volunteers do not allow volunteers to request external funds for Peace Corps Partnership projects. However, Peace Corps will send an email to Returned Peace Corps Affiliate groups regarding projects seeking funds based on a volunteers request.
For currently serving volunteers: If you would like to share information about your project with our group, please ensure that we are included in Peace Corps’ email distribution. We would appreciate it if your email included information regarding a date for when the funds are needed and a link to your PCPP project. In addition, it would be helpful for us to include some information regarding how you are connected to Colorado.
If your project does receive funding, we would like you to provide us:
- Status updates, as appropriate, particularly when the project starts and when it is completed.
- Description of the completed project, along with appropriate photos.
We will publicize this information on our website, our newsletter, and other communications as appropriate, to inform our members and partners about the project that was funded.
