2017 AmeriCorps Funding Priorities

With this competition, CNCS seeks to prioritize the investment of national service resources in:  
- Healthy Futures: Reducing and/or Preventing Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse 
- Safer Communities: Strengthening law enforcement and community relations

Application Deadline

The deadline for applications to the 2017 NOFO is Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Organizations that propose to operate in only one state must apply through the Governor-appointed State or Territory Commissions. Each state and territory administers its own selection process and puts forward to CNCS the applicants it selects to compete for funding. State applicants must contact their State Commissions to learn about their state or territory processes and deadlines which may be significantly before the CNCS deadlines and may have additional requirements. The list of State and Territory Commissions can be found here: http://www.nationalservice.gov/about/contact-us/state-service-commissions
Single-state applicants from South Dakota are eligible to apply directly to CNCS for the FY 2017 competition. If you are a potential applicant from South Dakota, please contact AmeriCorpsGrants@cns.gov for additional guidance.
