Grants to New Jersey nonprofits, LEAs, IHEs, agencies, and labor organizations to address critical local concerns through community action and volunteer efforts. Applicants must attend a technical assistance session and submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to increase civic engagement and improve communities by deploying AmeriCorps members to provide services in the six focus areas identified in the Serve America Act.
These focus areas are:
Applicants should demonstrate that they will engage AmeriCorps members in an evidence-informed and evidence-based approach to providing a service intervention that will result in intended solutions to community problems (e.g., based on proposed program’s performance and evaluation data or research demonstrating the effectiveness of a similar intervention).
Programs may engage members full-time or less than full-time. Full-time members must serve at least 1700 hours during a period of not less than nine months and not more than one year. Reduced Full-time members must serve at least 1200 hours. Half-time members must serve at least 900 hours during a period of one year as indicated in the approved budget. Programs may propose at least 300 hours for minimum-time, at least 450 hours for quarter-time, and at least 675 hours for reduced half-time members based on the program design. Beginning this program year, CNCS has also created a new 100 hour abbreviated term.
