Grants to Florida nonprofits, state and local government agencies, Tribes, and IHEs to employ volunteer staff to carry out a broad range of community services. Funding is intended to support volunteer services in the areas of social justice, education, COVID-19 community recovery, economic development, and more.
AmeriCorps grants are awarded to eligible organizations proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed (e.g., based on proposed program’s data or a similar program’s data) interventions to strengthen communities. An AmeriCorps member is an individual who engages in community service through an approved national service position. Members may receive a living allowance and other benefits while serving. Upon successful completion of their service, members earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award from the National Service Trust that members can use to pay for higher education expenses or apply to qualified student loans.
CNCS seeks to prioritize the investment of national service resources in the following areas:
To receive priority consideration, applicants must show that the priority area is a significant part of the program focus and intended outcomes, and must include a high-quality program design. Proposing programs that receive priority consideration does not guarantee funding.
