Any national, community, and faith-based non-profit organization, municipal and state government, federal agency or program, city, state and national park, or school throughout the United States and US territories can still apply to receive AmeriCorps NCCC resources. Traditional NCCC teams will continue to serve communities in the areas of infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, urban and rural development and natural and other disasters.
