The Alabama Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (GFBCI) is the state office that manages programs and initiatives designed to increase the number of Alabamians engaged in service and volunteering. Each year, as the State Service Commission, GFBCI awards AmeriCorps grants to nonprofit and public agencies that identify an unmet need in their community that will be addressed by AmeriCorps members that the organization recruits, trains, and manages.
AmeriCorps grants provide funding for items such as program staff, member living allowances, health insurance for full-time members, equipment, supplies and other associated program expenses. In the FY2011 grant competition, the funding priorities are projects that address compelling, unmet needs in one or a combination of the following five national service priority areas: Education, Healthy Futures, Clean Energy/Environment, Veterans, and Economic Opportunity.
The application deadline for the Competitive Grants, are due in e-Grants and hard copy with additional application documents to GFBCI Office by 5:00 p.m. CST on November 15, 2010.
