WACC is pursuing legislative funding in the 2018 Legislative Session for the Student Civic Engagement Initiative to support institutions’ efforts to address critical issues and cultivate civically engaged students.
Washington Campus Compact will issue a Request for Proposal in Spring 2018 for funding consideration, and proposals will be due in late May 2018 (contingent on funding). By submitting a Letter of Interest, your institution is not obligated to submit a proposal. There is also no guarantee that your institution will be selected to participate in the 2018 Student Civic Engagement Initiative.

Washington Campus Compact (WACC) is requesting proposals to administer a College Access Corps program
on member and non-member campuses throughout Washington. WACC will be in the first year of a three year AmeriCorps grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to help participating member campuses develop, implement, and/or expand grades 4-12 college access programs. The College Access Corps Grant will allow selected member campuses to enroll an AmeriCorps member to help coordinate college access programs in their local communities. AmeriCorps members will recruit and train college students from their campuses to act as college access coaches to economically disadvantaged youth* in schools, or to student groups, that have a student population that is at least 50% eligible for the federally-funded free/reduced lunch program.
