AmeriCorps Notice of Funding Opportunity

​​​​​
AMERICORPS STATE AND NATIONAL GRANTS

AmeriCorps State and National is a single program, the largest in the AmeriCorps suite of programs, which annually sees more than 65,000 members serve each year from hundreds of nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and faith-based organizations nationwide. These dedicated members provide an abundance of services to the communities where they’re deployed. Members have helped teach computer skills, build affordable housing, clean parks, and streams, assist communities in response to disasters, and a variety of other activities. Roughly three-quarters of all AmeriCorps State and National grant dollars go through and are administered by Governor-appointed state service commissions such as the Serve Illinois Commission.

Notice of Funding Opportunity:

2022 Public Health AmeriCorps Notice of Funding

Deadline:  Monday, November 8, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. ET.

Contact Information:  AmeriCorpsGrants@cns.gov

Public Health AmeriCorps will include a 400 million dollar investment, over five years, from the American Rescue Plan Act workforce funding that will enable the recruitment, training, and development of a new generation of public health leaders who are ready to respond to the public health needs of the nation by providing public health service in communities.


AmeriCorps members will serve primarily in state, local, tribal, and territorial public health departments or in service to public health departments. It is strongly recommended that AmeriCorps members serve in at least teams of two. AmeriCorps has found that placing at least two members at a service site location provides economies of scale and aids in the retention of members. 

 

Public Health AmeriCorps goals include:

Help meet the public health needs of local communities by providing needed capacity and support in state and local public health settings and advancing more equitable health outcomes for communities who are currently or historically underserved.


Provide pathways to good quality public health-related careers by providing exposure through onsite experience, training, and more, with a focus on recruiting AmeriCorps members who reflect the communities in which they will serve.


AmeriCorps agency's priorities include:

   Efforts to help local communities respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants may propose programming to aid communities in their efforts to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Technical Assistance Webinars

AmeriCorps is hosting technical assistance webinars for Public Health AmeriCorps applicants to answer questions about the funding opportunity and eGrants. AmeriCorps strongly encourages all applicants to participate in these sessions. The Technical Assistance Webinars section will be updated with additional calls and webinars as they are scheduled.
