AmeriCorps State Funding Opportunities

AmeriCorps State 2018 Competition

SerVermont has opened the AmeriCorps State 2018 competition in coordination with the Corporation for National and Community Service's release of the AmeriCorps State and National Notice of Funding Opportunity.  This competition is held annually, and the current competition funds programs operating in the AmeriCorps 2018-2019 Program Year, which runs September of 2018 through August of 2019.

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.
