2017 AmeriCorps State and National Grants

AmeriCorps grants are awarded to eligible organizations proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions to strengthen communities.

An AmeriCorps member is an individual who engages in community service through an approved national service position.


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.

Grant awards generally have two components:
operating funds and AmeriCorps member positions.

Grant award amounts vary – both in the level of operating funds and in the type and amount of AmeriCorps member positions.

Unless otherwise specified, the grant generally covers a three-year project period.

In approving a multi-year project period, CNCS generally makes an initial award for the first year of operation.

In most cases, the application is submitted with a one-year budget.

Continuation funding is not guaranteed.
