Special Initiatives

Communities

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) programs and initiatives provide valuable resources that strengthen communities and build capacity. Through these efforts, Americans are better able to respond to community needs and challenges, and are more likely to serve in their neighborhoods.

Native American Affairs: CNCS works with tribal organizations and governments to support Indian and Native American communities. National service participants have been involved with supporting Indian Tribes and organizations supporting Native American communities for more than 50 years.

Faith-Based and Community Initiatives: CNCS provides opportunities for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to serve in their communities, and bridges relationships between the federal government and secular- and faith-based community organizations.

Colleges and Universities:  CNCS supports a culture of service on college campuses across the country, by collaborating with other federal agencies, colleges and universities, higher education and student associations, and nonprofit organizations to encourage student volunteerism and to promote a spirit of service after graduation.
