Grants to Louisiana nonprofit organizations, state and local government agencies, Tribes, and institutions of higher education to employ volunteer staff to carry out a broad range of community services. Applicants must attend a technical assistance session and complete required registrations and some applicants are required to submit an initial application prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to assist organizations proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions and practices to strengthen communities.
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 that they can use to pay for higher education expenses or apply for qualified student loans.

To receive priority consideration, applicants must show that the priority area is a significant part of the program focus and intended outcomes. Proposing programs that receive priority consideration does not guarantee funding.

AmeriCorps anticipates making three-year grants. The agency generally makes an initial award for the first year of the period of performance, based on a one-year budget. Continuation awards for subsequent years are not guaranteed; they depend upon the availability of appropriations and satisfactory performance.
The project start date may not occur prior to the date AmeriCorps awards the grant. AmeriCorps applicants may not enroll prior to the start date of the award. AmeriCorps applicants may not begin service prior to the beginning of the member enrollment period as designated in the grant award. A program may not certify any hours an applicant performs prior to the applicant becoming a member in the system of record and the beginning of the member enrollment period.
