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 10 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?
