Additional Information of Eligibility:
Indian Tribes Planning Grant applicants must not have received an AmeriCorps grant in the past and must be an Indian Tribe.

Applicants may have received funding through Learn and Serve America, NCCC, Senior Corps, or VISTA.

“Indian Tribe” is defined as a federally recognized Indian Tribe, band, nation, or other organized group or community, including any Native village, Regional Corporation, or Village Corporation, as defined under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (43 U.S.C.

§ 1602), that the United States Government determines is eligible for special programs and services provided under federal law to Indians because of their status as Indians.

Indian Tribes also include tribal organizations controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by one of the entities described above.

A nonprofit that desires to apply for a grant as a “tribal organization” on behalf of a federally-recognized tribe, or multiple specific federally-recognized tribes, must submit a sanctioning resolution adopted by the Tribal Council (or comparable tribal governing body) of each tribe.

The resolution must identify the nonprofit by name as a “tribal organization” and it must authorize the nonprofit organization to act on behalf of and include the tribe in a CNCS grant application for the purpose of conducting the activities and providing the services described in the application.
