Grants to Louisiana nonprofit organizations, state and local government agencies, Tribes, and IHEs to employ volunteer staff to carry out a broad range of community services. Applicants must attend a technical assistance session, complete required registrations, and submit an initial application prior to submitting a full application.
AmeriCorps grants are awarded to eligible organizations proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions/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 from the National Service Trust that members can use to pay for higher education expenses or apply to qualified student loans. AmeriCorps Operating Grants may be awarded as Cost Reimbursement or a Fixed Amount grant.
CNCS seeks to prioritize the investment of national service resources in the following areas:
To receive priority consideration, applicants must show that the priority area is a significant part of the program focus and intended outcomes, and must include a high-quality program design. Proposing programs that receive priority consideration does not guarantee funding.
