AmeriCorp State and National Grants FY 2011
The mission of the Corporation for National and Community Service (the Corporation) is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.
For more than fifteen years, the Corporation–through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America programs–has helped to mobilize a new generation of engaged citizens. This year, more than 1.8 million individuals of all ages and backgrounds will serve with national and community non-profit organizations, faith-based groups, schools, and local agencies to meet needs in education, health, the environment, economic opportunity, veterans, disaster services, and other critical areas.
This Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity (Notice) should be read together with the AmeriCorps regulations 45 CFR Sections 2520 – 2550 and the Application Instructions.
This Notice will be amended with additional detail on strategic objectives, national performance measures, and the review and selection process in October, 2010.
In addition, the Corporation embraces the Obama Administration’s emphasis on open government. In that spirit, we are planning to move toward greater openness and transparency in our grant making processes.We plan to announce a new approach to the release of public information in the amended Notice, following grantee discussion on this topic in September.
