2017 AmeriCorps State and National Grants - Targeted Priority

AmeriCorps grants are awarded to eligible organizations proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions 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. This competition is for applicants proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in the following two areas: Healthy Futures - Reducing and/or Preventing Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse and Safer Communities - Strengthening law enforcement and community relations.
