Grant Description

CaliforniaVolunteers (CV) is seeking to fund new programs that engage individuals as AmeriCorps members to address unmet community needs through service and volunteer action.

Through the 2017 AmeriCorps State Request for Applications (RFA), CV will award AmeriCorps implementation grants on a competitive basis to eligible organizations that engage members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions to strengthen communities. Grants will be awarded beginning mid-August in 2017 to support service activities during the 2017-18 program year. Successful applicants are expected to start member service activities by mid-October of 2017 and will have 12 months to support AmeriCorps members in completing a term of service.


This RFA is open only to Governor’s Initiative applicants and current planning grantees. Applicants who participated in the earlier 2017 AmeriCorps grant competitions are not eligible to apply through this RFA for the same program already submitted for review.
