This program is designed to offer tangible solutions to critical issues that are challenging the quality of life in various populations. We invite forward thinkers, entrepreneurs and solutions oriented talkers to engage in meaningful problem solving. These episodes may be forwarded to government officials (and other interested entities)to let them review solutions oriented discussions. "The Corporation (for National and Community Service) considers “social innovation” as the development of a potentially trans-formative practice or approach to meeting critical social challenges. An approach is “transformative” if it not only produces strong measurable outcomes, but also 1) significantly impacts or informs the public discussion about systems of service delivery, 2) addresses more than one critical social challenge concurrently, or 3) produces dramatic cost savings through efficiency gains. In FY 2010, SIF awards will be made to a small number of intermediaries (existing grantmaking institutions or eligible partnerships) which make investments in nonprofit community organizations as an essential (rather than collateral) means of fulfilling their mission and vision...in one or more of the following priority issue areas:Economic Opportunity – Increasing economic opportunities for economically disadvantaged individually, Youth Development and School Support–Preparing America’s youth for success in school, active citizenship, productive work, and healthy and safe lives; Healthy Futures – Promoting healthy lifestyles and reducing the risk factors that can lead to illness." This program is designed to offer tangible solutions to the critical issues that are challenging the quality of life in various populations. We invite forward thinkers, entrepreneurs and solutions oriented talkers to engage in meaningful problem solving." ** WEBSITE- http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do;jsessionid=gdnTLd5TY9616JDG9mfbPTnpY0cvG2LM1y5LL2LSqv4kT57JGJl3!-28231359?oppId=51962&mode=VIEW
