Grant Description

CaliforniaVolunteers (CV) is seeking to fund new programs that engage individuals as AmeriCorps members to address unmet community needs through service and volunteer action.

Through the 2018 AmeriCorps State Formula Funding Opportunity, CV will award AmeriCorps implementation grants on a competitive basis to eligible organizations that engage members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions to strengthen communities. Grants will be awarded beginning mid-August in 2018 to support service activities during the 2018-19 program year. Successful applicants are expected to start member service activities by mid-October of 2018 and will have 12 months to support AmeriCorps members in completing a term of service.

 

Eligibility

Nonprofit organizations and state & local government agencies are eligible to apply. Since this process is an extension of the earlier competition for the 2018-19 program year, applicants that have already responded to the earlier 2018 AmeriCorps State Grant Request for Applications are NOT eligible to apply for funding for the same program under this funding opportunity.

 

Application Deadline

The application deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Technical Assistance Opportunities
