What’s the difference between FEMA Corps and the traditional track of AmeriCorps NCCC?

The AmeriCorps NCCC program focuses in a wide variety of service and project areas including direct response and recovery to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. In partnership with nonprofits, secular and faith based organizations, local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national or state parks, Indian Tribes and schools; NCCC members complete service projects throughout the campus region they are assigned.

FEMA Corps members will solely focus on disaster response and recovery activities with FEMA. Members will be dedicated to FEMA deployments in areas of logistics, community relations, individual and public assistance, and recovery. They will provide support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovery centers to sharing valuable disaster mitigation information with the public.
