How does AmeriCorps Funding Work?

AmeriCorps funding is used to provide partial operational support to eligible entities in leveraging a national service strategy to address community challenges. AmeriCorps grants are awarded to organizations proposing to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions/practices to strengthen communities.
