Grants to Pennsylvania agencies, IHEs, nonprofits, and tribes for projects to address critical community issues. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to applying. Funding is intended to support both planning and operational expenses for the proposed programs. Awards will be for funds and/or volunteer service.
Formula Funding – Program Operating Grants and Planning Grants: Applicants compete with other applicants at the state level. An agency that submits a competitive application may also submit a formula application. However, in the event an applicant is selected for both formula and competitive funding, the applicant is ineligible for funding under both; in most cases, PennSERVE will require the applicant to forfeit any rights to formula funds.

Awards will be for funds and/or AmeriCorps member slots. Award amounts will vary. The general practice is to award no more than 50 member positions (slots) to organizations receiving an AmeriCorps grant for the first time.
Requests for planning grants may not exceed $50,000.
Applicants who are funded may expect grant awards in summer 2021. Most project periods will be from Aug. 20, 2021 – Aug. 19, 2022.
With the exception of planning grants which will be for a one-year period only, AmeriCorps grants generally cover a three-year project period.
In approving a multi-year project period, PennSERVE and CNCS make an initial award for the first year of operation. The application is submitted with a one-year budget. Continuation funding is not guaranteed and shall be dependent on availability of appropriations and satisfactory performance.
