Operation AmeriCorps

CNCS is seeking to partner with localities to use national service as the transformative catalyst to address a pressing problem.

Tribal and local leaders (a mayor or other chief executive) will identify a high priority local challenge which AmeriCorps members from all three streams of service-AmeriCorps

credit:
State and National, AmeriCorps NCCC, and AmeriCorps VISTA-can holistically address in a relatively short period of time (no more than two years).

The solution must be place-based and ambitious in order to succeed in the competition.

The solution may be a new initiative, or it may use national service to scale up an existing successful effort.
