California Volunteers, the State Service Commission for California, is now accepting applications for funding as part of the AmeriCorps Place-Based Initiative in partnership with the Stockton Service Corps. The AmeriCorps Place-Based Initiative Funding Opportunity awards AmeriCorps grants to eligible community partnerships that will engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-informed or evidence-based interventions/practices (see Mandatory Supplemental Guidance) as part of the Stockton Service Corps collaborative to improve education outcomes for South Stockton students.
An AmeriCorps member is an individual who engages in community service through an approved national service position. Members 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.
This Funding Opportunity is only open to organizations proposing to operate in South Stockton. Nonprofit organizations and state and local government agencies are eligible to apply. All applicants must have active registration with the System for Award Management (SAM) at www.SAM.gov.
Estimated Funds Available
Approximately $2 million in federal dollars are available as part of this Funding Opportunity. A minimum of 24% cash and/or in-kind match is required.
Grants are solely for program expenses such as staffing, training, travel, supplies, member stipend, background checks, data collection, evaluation, etc. and cannot be used for general organizational operating expenses. AmeriCorps members or grant funds can help meet unmet needs or can expand an organization’s ability to better address community needs, but cannot be used to duplicate, displace or supplant resources that already exist in a community.
