The New York State Commission on National and Community Service (hereafter “the Commission”) seeks applicants for 2019-20 AmeriCorps competitive grant funding. The Commission is a governor-appointed commission with a diverse, non-partisan body of, among others, representatives of business, labor, education, government, human service agencies and community-based organizations. The Commission directs national service policy for the state and directly administers funding awarded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (hereafter “the Corporation” or “CNCS”) to support New York State AmeriCorps programs.
THIS PROPOSAL IS FOR COMPETITIVE FUNDING ONLY
Any application in response to this RFP is for the competitive pool of funding. The proposals forwarded to the Corporation by the Commission will compete with proposals from states across the country and from United States territories. They will also compete with proposals from organizations that operate and provide services in more than one state (hereafter “national direct organizations”) for the same limited and competitive pool of funds.
The Commission anticipates that 2019-2020 AmeriCorps competitive funding will be highly competitive. To maximize the impact of the public investment in national service, applications will be recommended for funding that demonstrate community impact and the ability to solve community problems using an evidence-based or evidence-informed approach (e.g., performance data, research, theory of change).
Please note: Proposals are due on 1/4/2019 by 4:59 p.m. Eastern Time.
Please see the RFP document for additional information and submission requirements.
