More Information on AmeriCorps State and National 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. 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 organizations operating in more than one state. The Corporation's mission is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. In the FY 2009 competition, the Corporation will give special consideration to projects that address one or a combination of five strategic initiatives, listed below, that meet critical needs of our nation, achieve national service goals, and address community problems. 1. Mobilizing more volunteers. 2. Ensuring a brighter future for all of America's youth. 3. Engaging students in communities. 4. Harnessing Baby Boomers' experience. 5. Helping communities recover from and prepare for disasters. In 2009, the Corporation will also give special consideration to programs designed to engage veterans as service recipients or providers. The Corporation reserves the right to re-focus program dollars in the event of disaster or other compelling need. Additional programs and program models that may receive special consideration in the selection process are described in the AmeriCorps regulations Section 2522.450. You can find the regulations here: http://www.americorps.gov/for_organizations/manage/index.asp. You are encouraged to integrate the priorities and initiatives into your program design, where they logically align with your organizational mission and objectives. For more information contact your state commission, which you can find here http://www.nationalservice.org/about/contact/statecommission.asp if you are interested in the State grant program. Contact (202) 606-7508 if you are interested in the National grant program.
