AmeriCorps State Formula Funding Opportunity 2019-2020
SerVermont is seeking new AmeriCorps Programs that could potentially be funded with our formula funds for the 2019-2020 AmeriCorps Program Year (September 1, 2019 - August 31, 2020) if funding allows. While the deadlines to be part of the Corporation for National and Community Service's compeititon have passed, SerVermont anticipates additional formula funding to be available to support the operation of AmeriCorps programs and/or planning grants. If you would like to submit a proposal for consideration please review the 2019 AmeriCorps State Request For Proposals, as the information remains the same with exception for the deadlines. A timeline for submitting new proposals and deadlines for doing so will be set when the results of the national competition are made public in April 2019. If you are interested in potentially operating a program, please contact Executive Director, Phil Kolling at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
AmeriCorps State 2019 Competition

This competition is held annually. The recently closed competition funds programs operating in the AmeriCorps 2019-2020 Program Year, which runs September of 2019 through August of 2020. CNCS will announce funding decisions from this compeition in April 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.
Multi-state applicants apply directly to CNCS, but must consult with SerVermont on an annual basis as part of the process.

AmeriCorps State Planning Grant Opportunities
SerVermont is currently seeking proposals for AmeriCorps State Planning Grants to fund September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020 planning activities. AmeriCorps Planning Grants provide funding for organizations to prepare to host an AmeriCorps State Program.
SerVermont is interested in funding planning grants in underserved areas of the state that do not currently host an AmeriCorps program and to organizations that seek to develop a program in a focus area that we do not currently offer programming.
Please contact SerVermont's Executive Director, Phil Kolling at email@example.com for more information on planning grants and to discuss your planning grant concept.
