Category Explanation
The purpose of planning grants is to support the development of AmeriCorps programs so applicants are better prepared to compete for an AmeriCorps program grant in the following grant cycle. Planning grants may not be used to support AmeriCorps members. The Corporation's purpose is to maximize the power of service and volunteering to improve lives in communities across the country. In the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, Congress directed the Corporation to focus national service in areas where service can make a major impact, including improving education; energy conservation; the health of all Americans; economic opportunity for economically vulnerable individuals; increasing service by and for veterans; and providing disaster services. The Corporation is carrying out Congress's intent by targeting AmeriCorps State and National funding in these six focus areas, and is developing strategic objectives for each. In accordance with the Act, through this Notice and its other activities, the Corporation seeks to: - Direct the power of national service to solve a common set of challenges. - Expand opportunities for all Americans to serve. - Build the enduring capacity of individuals, organizations and communities to effectively use service and volunteering to solve community problems. - Embrace innovative solutions that work. The mission of the Corporation for National and Community Service (the Corporation) is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic participation 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 engage millions of citizens in meeting community and national challenges through service and volunteer action.
