AmeriCorps Funding Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in hosting an AmeriCorps program
Who can apply to host an AmeriCorps program?
How do I know if AmeriCorps is a good fit for my organization?
- Could your organization use at least 6 people to engage in direct service in your community?
- Does your organization manage federal grants or are you interested in support from Nevada Volunteers to start?
- Is your organization able to provide 24% match funds to your grant? (For example if you receive a grant of $75,000 from Nevada Volunteers you will need to match it with $18,000 for a total project budget of $93,000)
What are the next steps?
- Please reach out to Hawley Carlson, Director of AmeriCorps, firstname.lastname@example.org, 775-825-1900, to discuss how AmeriCorps can help your organization expand its mission.
