Eligible organizations selected for funding implement National Service programs that engage AmeriCorps members to impact and solve community problems through an evidence-based approach.

AmeriCorps State Competitive grants provide resources and assistance to programs to recruit, train, and supervise AmeriCorps members meeting critical community needs in the areas of Education, Disaster Services, Health, Environmental Stewardship, Economic Opportunity, and service to Veterans and Military Families.
