AmeriCorps State and National Grants

The federal Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for AmeriCorps State and National Grants FY 2018 has been released by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

The 2018 NOFO should be read together with the Mandatory Supplemental Guidance. These and other national resources are posted on the CNCS Funding Opportunities webpage under AmeriCorps State and National Grants FY 2018.

FY18 Kentucky AmeriCorps Grant Application Request for Proposals (RFP)

State service commissions, like the KCCVS, have their own requests for proposals (RFP) and training/technical assistance schedule. Kentucky-specific resources and required documents are posted below.

Please keep in mind, the dates referenced in the NOFO materials are for national directs (programs operating in multiple states) and state commissions. At no time during the state competitive competition should single state applicants contact CNCS.

Learn more about the Kentucky AmeriCorps Grant Process. The formula RFP will open in Spring 2018. Send an email to join the grant information distribution list.

National Direct Consultation

National directs proposing to operate in Kentucky must complete the National Direct Consultation online survey no later than Jan. 10, 2018.

CNCS expects commissions and national direct applicants to consult and coordinate activities at the local level, as specified in Section 131 of the NCSA (42 U.S.C. § 12583). This consultation is designed to ensure the most effective use of national service resources and lead to enhanced coordination.

To ensure coordination, and before application submission, national direct applicants (programs planning to operate in more than one state), except federally-recognized Indian Tribes, must:

  • Consult with the commission of each state and/or territory in which the organization plans to operate and describe this consultation in their applications.
  • See additional requirements and information in the NOFO, Section 7. Other Submission Requirements, a. Coordination among State commissions and national direct applicants.
