AmeriCorps State 2019 Competition

SerVermont's AmeriCorps State 2019 competition, held in coordination with the Corporation for National and Community Service's (CNCS) AmeriCorps State and National compeition, is now open. This competition is held annually, and the current competition funds programs operating in the AmeriCorps 2019-2020 Program Year, which runs September of 2019 through August of 2020.

SerVermont's competition is for single state AmeriCorps programs that propose operating only in Vermont. Applicants that propose operating in multiple states apply directly to CNCS through the national competition. Single state applicants must respond to SerVermont's Request for Proposals and all applicable deadlines in order to be considered for funding.

Multi-state applicants apply directly to CNCS, but must consult with SerVermont on an annual basis as part of the process. SerVermont requires multi-state applicants proposing to operate in Vermont to consult us using an online fillable form. Many states can be consulted at once using this form. The form can be found here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FY19Consult
