With the FY 2014 AmeriCorps Indian Tribes Notice of Funding Opportunity, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) seeks to prioritize the investment of national service resources in economic opportunity, education, veterans and military families, and disaster services in Native American communities. Through this grant competition, CNCS will continue to focus on national service programs that: 
  • Improve academic outcomes for children, youth, and young adults - reflecting the extensive experience and past success of national service programs in education;
  • Serve veterans and military families or engage veterans and military families in service;
  • Increase community resiliency through disaster preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation; and 
  • Increase economic opportunities for communities and AmeriCorps members. 

Application Deadline

Applications are due Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. CNCS expects that successful applicants will be notified no later than June 20, 2014.


Only federally-recognized Indian Tribes and tribal organizations are eligible to apply to this competition. “Indian Tribe” is defined as a federally recognized Indian Tribe, band, nation, or other organized group or community, including any Native village, Regional Corporation, or Village Corporation, as defined under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (43 U.S.C. § 1602), that the United States Government determines is eligible for special programs and services provided under federal law to Indians because of their status as Indians. Indian Tribes also include tribal organizations controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by one of the entities described above. 
A nonprofit that desires to apply for a grant as a “tribal organization” on behalf of a federally-recognized tribe, or multiple specific federally-recognized tribes, must submit a sanctioning resolution adopted by the Tribal Council (or comparable tribal governing body) of each tribe. The resolution must identify the nonprofit by name as a “tribal organization” and it must authorize the nonprofit organization to act on behalf of and include the tribe in a CNCS grant application for the purpose of conducting the activities and providing the services described in the application.
