  • Please verify the following:

    I understand that VHCB has not yet been awarded grant funds for the 2023-2024 Program Year, may incur unforeseeable reductions to its operating budget, and that these amounts may change prior to the start of the 2023-24 program year.

    I understand that the member’s supervisor may be required to attend several meetings/days of training throughout the service year, including one full day of the AmeriCorps Training. I understand that we will be expected to release the member for AmeriCorps-related events for up to 3 days/month on average.

    I understand that our organization will be responsible for recruiting the member(s) and its associated costs. Our organization understands that it cannot offer the position to an individual until approval for that selection has been obtained from the VHCB AmeriCorps Director.

    I understand that as a service position that it is not possible to ‘dismiss’ a Member after a trial period unless they are clearly performing illegal or unsafe acts, or unless their attitude warrants it, and then if and only if there is clear documentation of these acts and if, and only if, the member has had access to due process. I understand the AmeriCorps position is not intended to, and should not, displace an employed position. I also understand the member will be performing direct services to fill a need that our organization has, and that this need falls within the limits of the mission and objectives of the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board AmeriCorps Program as stated in their AmeriCorps*State Grant Application.
