Funding & Resources

For over 20 years, CNCS—through its programs: Senior Corps and AmeriCorps—has helped to engage millions of citizens in meeting community and national challenges through service and volunteer action. CNCS provides grants to national and local nonprofits, schools, government agencies, faith-based and other community organizations and other groups committed to strengthening their communities through volunteering. AmeriCorps is an umbrella that consists of three distinct programs: AmeriCorps VISTA, the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps program or NCCC, and AmeriCorps State and National.

Grants are either made directly to an organization or through an intermediary group that handles the distribution of grant funding. Eligibility requirements and funding opportunities vary by program. CNCS also provides opportunities to apply for resources such as national service positions through sponsorship and projects.
