FY 2017 Formula AmeriCorps Funding Opportunity

Volunteer Florida is pleased to announce the availability of 2017-2018 AmeriCorps grant funding (Formula Funding Cycle). Proposals are due April 6, 2017.

Each year, 80,000 Americans across our nation meet critical community needs through service in AmeriCorps. With funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service that is administered by Volunteer Florida, AmeriCorps members dedicate a year of their life to intensive community service in exchange for a small living stipend and college scholarship. The experience often leads to a life enriched by volunteeringAC_FL and in many cases, a career in the nonprofit-sector or public service.

AmeriCorps programs address critical community needs including education, disaster services, economic opportunity, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans & military families. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, response to local disasters, restoring natural habitats, respite care to seniors and job training/placement. AmeriCorps members also mobilize community volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the organizations where they serve.
