New AmeriCorps FY18 application-related resources available on the CNCS webpage

In addition to AmeriCorps State and National's recently posted Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), a variety of resources can be found on our AmeriCorps State and National Grants FY 2018 webpage:

  • Technical Assistance Conference Calls: AmeriCorps State and National will host technical assistance conference calls to answer questions and provide technical assistance to organizations, local governments, and tribes that are interested in applying for FY2018 AmeriCorps grants. Please review the complete list of upcoming calls for the schedule, description, and registration. Please share phone lines and only register once per line used, as there is a 100 line maximum per TTA call. 
  • First Technical Assistance Conference Call: The first TTA call is scheduled for Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 1:00 PM EST, and will be an overview and Q&A of the 2018 AmeriCorps State and National Grant Competition. The recording will be available shortly after. 
  • Technical Assistance Documents: A series of technical assistance documents have been prepared to help to answer commonly asked questions about AmeriCorps and a variety of grant competition topics. This may be helpful for new potential applicants.
  • Performance Measures: The 2018 Performance Measure Instructions and a tutorial on how to use the Performance Measures module are available.
