National Service Agency Announces AmeriCorps Funding Opportunities for Indian Tribes

The Center would like to share a new funding opportunity for tribes from the Corporation for National Community Service. 

“The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) announced that Indian Tribes now have the opportunity to apply for funding that would position them to identify ways that AmeriCorps members could help them tackle the unique challenges facing Native American communities.

The AmeriCorps planning grants provide up to $75,000 for a one-year period to provide support to an Indian Tribe for the development of an AmeriCorps program that will engage AmeriCorps members in order to address pressing community problems. Planning grant recipients are expected to be better prepared to compete for an AmeriCorps program grant in the following grant cycle.”
