AmeriCorps State Education Award Program: Purpose of GrantsAmeriCorps State Education Award Program: These grants are awarded to organizations that are nominated to participate in a nationwide competition by Governor-appointed state commissions. Grantees receive a small administrative grant and use their own or other resources to pay the members living allowance and support program costs. For more than a decade, the Corporation for National and Community Service-through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve programs-has mobilized a new generation of engaged citizens. This year, more than 1.8 million individuals of all ages and backgrounds will serve through these programs. They will help thousands of national and community nonprofit organizations, faith-based groups, schools, and local agencies meet local needs in education, the environment, public safety, homeland security, and other critical areas. For example, in 2005-2006, more than 21,000 national service volunteers contributed to hurricane relief and recovery across the country.AmeriCorps grants are generally awarded to eligible organizations to recruit, train, and manage AmeriCorps members who address unmet community needs. AmeriCorps members are individuals who engage in community service. Members may receive a living allowance during their term of service. Upon successful completion of their service members receive an education award from the National Service Trust. Roughly three quarters of all AmeriCorps grant funding goes to Governor-appointed state service commissions which award subgrants to nonprofit organizations in their states. These organizations recruit AmeriCorps members to respond to local needs. The Corporation distributes most of the remainder of the grant funding directly to national organizations operating in more than one state. We will give special consideration to projects that address one or a combination of four strategic initiatives: 1. Mobilizing more volunteers. The Corporation will invest in organizations that can effectively recruit, train, manage, and use volunteers who will ultimately have an impact on the success of their program. We will increase the capacity of faith-based and other community organizations to mobilize volunteers in communities to meet critical needs. We plan to support organizations that develop strong partnerships and collaborations with volunteer centers or other volunteer connector organizations in their service areas. 2. Ensuring a brighter future for all of Americas youth. The Corporation will invest in organizations that provide caring adults as mentors for youth from disadvantaged circumstances, and opportunities for young people from disadvantaged circumstances to serve their communities. We plan to support organizations that recruit and manage at-risk youth serving in National Service Programs, and mentoring efforts, particularly those targeting children of prisoners.3. Engaging students in communities. The Corporation will invest in organizations that implement effective strategies for connecting their school, faculty, staff, and administration with their communities through service and volunteering. We plan to support K-12 and higher education institutions that effectively incorporate service-learning into their curricula, and the number of college students engaged in community service and service-learning. We will also help colleges and universities expand support for student service. 4. Harnessing baby boomers experience. The Corporation will invest in programs that plan to capture the talents, skills, energy, and experience of baby boomers and older Americans to meet local and national needs. We plan to improve the capacity of nonprofits to attract and retain boomers via targeted training and technical assistance. (For more information on these strategic initiatives, please see the Corporations Strategic Plan ( focus_areas/index.asp).Additional programs and program models that may receive special consideration in the selection process are described in the AmeriCorps regulation § 2522.450. You will note that mobilizing volunteers, youth in disadvantaged circumstances, working with educational institutions, and baby boomers are priorities in the regulation as well as our strategic initiatives. You are encouraged to integrate the priorities and initiatives into your program design, as they logically align with your organizational mission and objectives. Program requirements are located in the AmeriCorps regulations, 45 CFR §§ 2520 - 2550 ( Changes to these regulations can be found in the AmeriCorps rule published in July of 2005 ( rulemaking.asp).
