AmeriCorps Grants Will Focus on Evidence-Based Interventions

Nonprofit organizations, tribes, and local governments are eligible for the next round of grants from AmeriCorps, the federal agency for community service and volunteerism.  The funding for 2023 will prioritize evidence-based interventions proven to work in communities with concentrated poverty and/or historically underrepresented and underserved individuals.  The programs present a unique opportunity for organizations that work in rural to help support public and community health and create potential career pathways while also addressing longstanding workforce capacity challenges.  The deadline to apply for federal grants is January 4, 2023.  Single-state applicant deadlines to State Commissions may be significantly earlier.
