As a VISTA with Aging and Disabilities Resource Center (ADRC) at Texoma Council of Governments (TCOG), you will help end poverty by writing grants to develop affordable and/or transitional housing within the Texoma region and to create opportunities for employment for persons with disabilities or who are over age 60. Major functions will include becoming familiar with the community and the issues concerning the housing shortage, researching grant funding opportunities in-line with the project goals, preparing a minimum of 6 grant applications with goal of raising $250,000. VISTAs serve their communities through indirect service. The programs developed by the Grant Writing VISTA will endure for years, however the VISTA member will have limited interaction with ADRC’s clients and will be based in an office setting. Applicants should possess good researching skills, strong verbal and writing communication skills, and computer skills.
