Multi-State AmeriCorps Program
CNCS expects State Commissions and multi-state grantees to consult and coordinate activities at the local level, as specified in Section 131. [42 U.S.C. 12583] of the National Community Service Act (NCSA). This consultation is designed to ensure the most effective use of national service resources and lead to enhanced coordination among grantees.
Multi-state applicants and grantees must:
- Complete the Montana Consultation Form.
- Consult in a timely manner with the State Commission of each state in which the organization knows it will operate prior to application submission and describe this consultation in their applications.
- Provide the State Commission with contact information for multi-state programs in their state after grants are awarded, and update these lists on an annual basis.
- Participate in the State Commission’s annual needs assessment and training plan development activities, and in the development of their state service plan, as well as appropriate training and other events.
- Include the State Commission on the multi-state grantee’s mailing list and invite them to appropriate training and other events.
