The nation's leading federal agency for service has a new opportunity for tribal groups that would provide funding for AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers on the ground to help them tackle the unique challenges facing Native American communities.
Indian Tribes and organizations that support Native American communities have been successfully drawing upon national service resources to meet family and community needs for more than 45 years. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps NCCC programs has a long-standing commitment to working with tribal nations on a government-to-government basis and is committed to enhancing the collaboration process across all programs to address critical issues affecting Native American communities.
