Operation AmeriCorps

Operation AmeriCorps is a new initiative created by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

For the first time, applicants may request AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps NCCC resources in a single application to use national service as the transformative

credit:


catalyst to address a community’s most pressing local problem.

Through Operation AmeriCorps, tribal and local leaders will identify a high priority local challenge which AmeriCorps resources can holistically address in a relatively short period of time (no more than two years).

The competition is open exclusively to tribal and local governments, including counties, cities, towns, and school districts; and state service commissions.

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

In either case AmeriCorps must be the additive ingredient to achieve holistic change at the local level.
