AmeriCorps State and National Grants

The federal Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for AmeriCorps State and National Grants FY 2017 was released by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) on Aug. 15, 2016.

The AmeriCorps Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) should be read together with the Mandatory Supplemental Guidance and Application Instructions. These and other national resources are posted on the CNCS Funding Opportunities webpage under AmeriCorps State and National Competitive Grants FY 2017.

Kentucky AmeriCorps Grant Request for Proposals

State service commissions, like the KCCVS, release their own state-specific NOFO. Kentucky opened its RFP process on Sept. 6, 2016. Kentucky-specific resources and required documents are posted below. Applicants must adhere to the Kentucky deadlines listed below and in Kentucky's NOFO, not those in the federal NOFO.
