FY18 Commission Investment Funds

Dear Colleagues,
Attached you will find the FY18 Training and Technical Assistance – Commission Investment Funds (CIF) continuation guidance. This funding opportunity is only available for continuing applicants. This information will also be posted online next week, and the application will also open in eGrants next week.

Applications are due by 5:00 pm Eastern on Thursday, August 2, 2018.

CNCS will host an optional call for commissions on Tuesday, July 17, 4:00 – 5:00 pm Eastern, to discuss the FY18 guidance and the future plans for the CIF grants. To participate in the call, dial 888-810-3948, and use passcode 4997186. The call will be recorded; the replay number is 866-446-5479, and it will be available until August 31, 2018.

For planning purposes, here are our goals for the CIF grants in FY18-FY20:

  • FY18 CIF Continuation: September, 2018 – June, 2019 (may request a no cost extension for up to 12 months if needed)
  • FY19 CIF New (Year 1):  July, 2019 – December, 2019 (may apply unexpended funds to Year 2, along with Year 2 allocation
    • CNCS plans to align the application deadlines of FY19 CIF grants and FY19 Commission Support Grants, though grant start dates will vary in 2019.
  • FY20 CIF Continuation (Year 2): January, 2020 – December, 2020 (may apply unexpended funds to offset the FY21 CIF Continuation)

Please be sure to check with your CNCS Program Officer and Grants Officer if you have any questions about the continuation instructions.

Thank you,

AmeriCorps State and National
