Kentucky AmeriCorps Grant Process Timeline

State service commissions, like the KCCVS, release their own state-specific NOFO. Kentucky will open its RFP process on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016.

Kentucky-specific resources and required documents will be posted on this webpage once the RFP process opens. Applicants must adhere to the Kentucky deadlines listed below, not those in the federal NOFO.
