Grantee Resources

Nevada Volunteers believes in the power of service as a solution to many of Nevada’s unmet needs. We also recognize that the decision to apply for an AmeriCorps program and become part of the National Service Network is a huge one. Becoming part of the National Service Network can bring opportunities for your organization and the community you serve. However, it also brings significant responsibilities for your organization.

This Grantee Management Resource Manual provides a broad overview of AmeriCorps while highlighting basic components and rules to support you in having an understanding of the complexities of running an AmeriCorps program. It is meant to serve as a guide for those who administer an AmeriCorps program in Nevada. However, the information contained in this manual does not include all the legal requirements you are responsible for once you have accepted an AmeriCorps grant.

This manual does not constitute the Corporation for National and Community Service’s official definitive interpretation of the law, regulations, and policies related to an AmeriCorps Program. Program directors or individuals with particular questions should consult the National and Community Service Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. § 12501 et seq.), the regulations issued under the Act (45 C.F.R. § 2500.1 et. seq.), the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, the AmeriCorps Grant Provisions and Grants Policy guidance, and relevant state law and regulations. If there is a conflict between the content of this resource manual and the AmeriCorps provisions, the provisions are the controlling authority.
