AmeriCorps Contracting Documents

Once an AmeriCorps grant has been awarded by the Corporation for National & Community Service, the program must enter into a contract with California Volunteers before it can begin providing the awarded services or incur costs. Contracting is handled through the California Volunteers AmeriCorps Community via our Salesforce platform. Forms and further instructions can be found below. Please allow up to 30 days for the contracting process.
