Federal Funding Task Force Seeks Volunteers for 2017 Session

The Federal Funding Task Force is now seeking volunteers to help compile the 2017 Federal Funding to Two-Year Colleges Report

The annual task force meets with federal agencies in Washington D.C. to discuss funding levels and program priorities, update contacts and request data on funds and grants awarded to community colleges. 

Chair Michelle Alexander and co-chair Melissa are looking for 65 volunteers from community colleges to carry the workload this year. 

"Now the work [of FFTF] is more valuable than ever," says Alexander. "In a constantly shifting federal environment...this is an opportunity to get in front of (federal) program officers for face-to-face conversations on behalf of all community colleges."

Registration for the task force will remain open on a first-come, first-served based until August 1. There will be a wait list to accommodate for volunteers who may drop out, Alexander says.

Individuals interested in volunteering on the FFTF should have an interest in grants, but they don't necessarily have to be a grant writer or developer for their institution. 

"As a member of FFTF, you're first to learn tips about trends and proposals in federal funding," adds Alexander. "It's intense, but a great network of committed members who continue to keep in touch. We're looking for people...willing to work."

The CASE Federal Funding Task Force call for volunteers is open to all CASE community college members. Priority is given based on the date of application
