Grant Description

In September 2020, California Volunteers launched the California Climate Action Corps, the country’s first statewide corps of its kind with the mission of empowering Californians to take meaningful action to protect their homes, health and communities against the harshest impacts of climate change.  As a foundational element of this new initiative, California Volunteers has deployed more than 400 AmeriCorps fellows to support local climate action projects in front-line and low-income communities across the state. All Fellows receive a living allowance and are eligible for an education award upon completion of their term.

The 2023 California Climate Action Corps Expansion Funding Opportunity provides state and federal funds to expand the existing California Climate Action Corps grant in the 2023-2024 program year. Successful applicants will collaborate with California Volunteers to further develop the California Climate Action Corps program and deploy approximately 345 full-time equivalent AmeriCorps member positions.

Eligible Applicants

This continuation funding opportunity is open to existing California Volunteers AmeriCorps grantees operating a California Climate Action Corps program in 2022-2023.

The complete application is due via email to Funding@CaliforniaVolunteers.CA.GOV by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
