The funding mechanism for the AmeriCorps VISTA Campus Recruitment Support is a cooperative agreement. Under a cooperative agreement, CNCS is substantially involved with the recipient organizations as the approved cooperative agreement activities are implemented.
CNCS will assign a program officer, who will confer with the award recipient regularly and frequently to develop and/or review service delivery and project status, including work plans, budgets, periodic reports, evaluations, etc.
