Your World. Your Chance to Make it Better.

AmeriCorps State works with Governor-appointed State Service Commissions to provide grants to public and nonprofit organizations that sponsor service programs around the country, including hundreds of faith-based and community organizations, higher education institutions, and public agencies. Grants assist these groups in recruiting, training and placing AmeriCorps members to meet critical community needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment.

Purpose

The purpose of AmeriCorps State is to engage AmeriCorps members in direct service and capacity-building to address unmet community needs. Local programs design service activities for a team of members serving full- or part-time for one year or during the summer. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, assisting crime victims, building homes, and restoring parks. AmeriCorps members also mobilize community volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the organizations where they serve.

The organizations that receive grants are responsible for recruiting, selecting, and supervising AmeriCorps members to serve in their programs.

Who May Apply for AmeriCorps State Grants?

AmeriCorps State operates through State Service Commissions in each state. The State Service Commissions accept applications from:

  • State and local nonprofit organizations
  • Community and faith-based organizations
  • State, local, and higher education institutions
