The mission of the Corporation for National and Community Service is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. Through AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, the Social Innovation Fund, and the Volunteer Generation Fund, CNCS engages millions of citizens in meeting community and national challenges through service and volunteer action.
The purpose of the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance grant funding is to mobilize more Americans to engage in service and remembrance activities that meet vital community needs and honor the sacrifice of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, or who rose in service as a result of that tragedy.
In order to carry out Congress’s intent and to maximize the impact of investment in national service, this September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance Notice prioritizes grant funding in CNCS’s focus areas of Disaster Services and Veterans and Military Families. CNCS will also give priority consideration to organizations with applications that feature a proposal to develop educational materials or curriculum for youth about service to honor September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.
- Disaster Services - Grants will help individuals and communities prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of disasters and increase community resiliency.
- Veterans and Military Families - Grants will improve the quality of life of veterans and improve military family strength.
