2016 Indiana AmeriCorps Funding Available

Serve Indiana Commission (Serve Indiana), in cooperation with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), are now accepting applications for the AmeriCorps*State grant.

AmeriCorps grants are awarded to eligible organizations for the purpose of supporting AmeriCorps members and addressing community needs. An AmeriCorps Member is an individual who is enrolled in an approved national service position and engages in community service. Members may receive a living allowance and other benefits while serving. Upon successful completion of their service members receive an education award from the National Service Trust.

CNCS awards AmeriCorps State Formula funds to Governor-appointed state service commissions. Serve Indiana  is responsible for administering these funds and overseeing all of the AmeriCorps grants awarded to the state.
