FY 2018 Competitive AmeriCorps Funding Opportunity


Volunteer Florida is pleased to announce the availability of grant funding under the 2018-2019 AmeriCorps competitive funding cycle.
Deadline: November 16, 2017.

Each year, approximately 80,000 Americans 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 volunteering 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 and military families. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, response to local disasters, restoring natural habitats, and job training/placement. AmeriCorps members also mobilize community volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the organizations where they serve.
